Earlier work has shown that levels of key biochemicals in the energy production system of rat brain are affected by exposure to 591 MHz microwave radiation at 13.8 mW/sq cm. The objectives of this study were to determine whether there are direct microwave effects on the biological system or whether they are secondary to the hyperthermia produced in the tissue, to establish dose-response relationships for the effects, and to investigate different frequencies of exposure and modulation of the carrier signal. The fluorescence of reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) in the rat brain was measured in vivo during exposure to the microwave radiation, and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and creatine phosphate (CP) levels were measured chemically after exposure.
