Operant Behavior of Rhesus Monkeys in the Presence of Extremely Low Frequency-Low Intensity Magnetic and Electric Fields: Experiment 3.
NAVAL AEROSPACE MEDICAL RESEARCH LAB PENSACOLA FL
Pagination or Media Count:
The present study exposed two female rhesus monkeys to a magnetic field of 0.001 T alternating at 10 Hz and 60 Hz. Low intensity electric fields were simultaneously present. The fields did not influence operant response rates, reaction time, matching-to-sample or motor activity. This study, in addition to two similar studies with male animals, supports the contention that ELF electromagnetic fields of low intensity do not have effects on purposive behavior in rhesus monkeys.
