To study the effect of acute exposure to ultra wideband (UWB) electromagnetic fields on the Primate Equilibrium Platform (PEP) task, where the monkey's task is to manipulate a joystick control to compensate for the random perturbations in the pitch plane that are generated by a computer at unpredictable intervals.
100 MHz–1.5 GHz
Modulation type: pulsed
Exposure duration: continuous for 2 min (7200 pulses)
|Frequency||100 MHz–1.5 GHz|
|Exposure duration||continuous for 2 min (7200 pulses)|
|Additional info||peak power between 250-500 MHz|
|Repetition frequency||60 Hz|
|Distance between exposed object and exposure source||1 m|
|Setup||Monkeys were seated in a restraining chair made of Styrofoam which was placed directly in front of the antenna with the monkey facing the boresight.|
|Additional info||Each monkey was exposed twice with six days between.|
|electric field strength||250 kV/m||peak value||measured||-||-|
|SAR||0.5 mW/g||average over mass||estimated||whole body||-|
The exposure to UWB electromagnetic fields had no effect on PEP performance when tested immediately after exposure.
