Abstract:

An electrophysiological response of the CNS of dogs manifested by high-voltage, erratic spiking and bilateral asynchrony was shown to exist following low-level head-only x-irradiation of 1 - 100 rad. Evidence obtained in a study of possible mechanisms involved is consistent with nerve cell membrane permeability changes. Author
