Effects of extremely low-frequency magnetic field in the brain of rats.
Published in: Brain Res Bull 2006; 68 (5): 355-360
Aim of study (acc. to author)
continuous for 7 days
Distance between exposed object and exposure source
Plastic cages with standard dimensions (26 cm x 43 cm x 15 cm) were covered with plexiglas plates and fixed to polystyrene foam. Each experimental group was divided into two subgroups that were simultaneously
exposed (or sham-exposed). The center of each cage was 20 cm from the poles of the core on the respective side of an electromagnet. Sham-exposed animals were subjected to the same procedure as the exposed ones, but the source of the field was not activated.
solenoid type electromagnet with a regular laminated transformer core and pole dimensions 9.5 cm x 9.5 cm was used for generating the magnetic field.
Magnetic force lines were parallel to the horizontal component of the local geomagnetic field. Deviation of the geomagnetic field measured by a proton magnetometer was within the normal range. The background magnetic field did not exceed 10 -5 mT.
