Mice were divided into three groups (n=7-18 per group): 1.) exposure of dams and offspring for 7 days after birth, 2.) exposure of dams during the last 7 days of pregnancy and 3.) control group. Motor coordination experiments were performed with the offspring in the age of 12 to 13 weeks.
Exposure duration: continuous for 7 days
|Setup||each of the coils was 40 cm in diameter, had 154 turns, and the coils were separated at a distance of 20 cm|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|
|Additional info||magnetic force lines were parallel to the horizontal component of the local geomagnetic field|
|magnetic flux density||1 mT||spatial average||measured||-||-|
The motor coordination of mice that were neonatally exposed to an extremely low frequency magnetic field was significantly impaired compared to the control group. However, no significant difference was observed between the prenatally exposed group and the control group.
