To test the effects of mobile phone exposure on spatial memory performance in rats.
Male rats were divided into an exposure group (n=6) and a control group (n=6).
ばく露時間: 50 missed calls/day, separated by 15 s intervals, for 4 weeks
|ばく露時間||50 missed calls/day, separated by 15 s intervals, for 4 weeks|
|ばく露装置の詳細||phone used in vibration mode; phone placed inside the rats' cage|
No parameters are specified for this exposure.
Both, the exposure group and the control group showed a significant decrease in escape time with training. Exposed animals displayed three times higher mean latency to reach the target quadrant and spent two times less time in the target quadrant than the control group.
Mobile phone exposure affected the acquisition of learned responses in rats. The exposed animals showed poor spatial navigation.
