The Effect of Sub-Chronic Whole-Body Exposure to a 1,950 MHz Electromagnetic Field on the Hippocampus in the Mouse Brain. med./bio.

Published in: JEES 2015; 15 (3): 151-157

Aim of study (acc. to author)

The effects of exposure of mice to a 1950 MHz electromagnetic field on cognitive functions and hippocampal histology should be investigated.

Background/further details

Mice were divided into two groups (n=7 each): exposure and sham exposure. After exposure, behavioral tests were conducted first and subsequently animals were killed and the brain was investigated.
