Adult rats anesthesized with pentobarbital and injected intravenously with a mixture of (C) sucrose and (H) inulin were exposed for 30 min. to an environment at an ambient temperature of 22, 30, or 40 C, or were exposed at 22 C to 2450-MHz CW microwave radiation at power densities of 0, 10, 20, or 30 mW/cm. Following exposure, the brain was perfused and sectioned into eight regions, and the radio-activity in each region was counted. The data were analyzed by two methods.
