The effects of exposure of rats to a 900 MHz electromagnetic field on the blood level of serotonin and glutamate should be investigated.
Serotonin and glutamate were investigated as crucial factors for the function of the brain.
9 anesthetized rats were exposed to the electromagnetic field. Shortly before (control values) and after the exposure, a blood sample was taken from each rat.

|ばく露装置の詳細||rats were grouped by three and placed on a plexiglass plate with the antenna placed at a distance of 0.5 - 1 cm from their head|
The serotonin level was significantly increased after exposure compared to the measurement before, whereas the glutamate level was not changed significantly.
The authors conclude that exposure of rats to a 900 MHz electromagnetic field could have an effect on the serotonin blood level.
