Abstract:

This report describes a research effort designed to provide basic information in the behavioral effects of low-level microwave radiation. A laboratory facility was established appropriate for the analysis of some basic performances of primates during extended exposure to a controlled microwave field. Exposures as long as 16 hrsday for 30 days 10 mwcm2 failed to reliably modify primates capacities to complete extended work requirements or to discriminate extended intervals of time. Studies designed to ascertain the possible sensory discrimination of the radiation field by primates between power levels 10 mwcw2 and 30 mwcw2 showed a reliable behavioral change under the upper power range where associated thermal stimuli were clearly evident.
