Abstract:

The report covers the first year of a research program designed to provide information on the behavioral effects of low-level microwave radiation. A laboratory facility was established for an experimental analysis of the performance of primates exposed to a specified microwave field and experimental methods have been developed which will permit the assessment of changes in complex behavior resulting from acute and chronic exposure to a low-level microwave field of defined frequencies. In addition, methods are being developed for assessing biochemical effects of microwave exposure under conditions related to such performance changes.
