Neurophysiology. Microwave hearing is a special effect of short pulsed, radiofrequent electromagnetic fields (200 MHz - 6.5 GHz). Humans can perceive a buzzing or clicking sound. The effects have been attributed to a thermoelastic interaction in the auditory cortex of the brain, with a threshold for perception of about 100-400 mJ/m² for pulses of duration less than 30 ms at 2.45 GHz, this is corresponding to a specific absorption of 4-16 mJ/kg.
