Pagination or Media Count:
Effects of low-level microwave irradiation on neurological function were investigated in the rat. Results can be summarized in the following statements 1 acute exposure effects the response of an animal to psychoactive drugs and changes cholinergic activity in the brain 2 effects of microwaves are classically conditionable to environmental cues after repeated exposure. Tolerance can also develop after repeated exposure and 3 endogenous opioids play a mediati ng role in certain neurological effects of microwaves. These data further our understanding on the neurological effects of microwave exposure and may have important implications in certain occupational situations in which repeated exposure to low-level microwaves is unavoidable.
