Intense magnetic fields have been shown to affect memory-related behaviours of rodents. A series of experiments was performed to investigate further the effects of a 50 Hz magnetic field on the foraging behaviour of adult, male C57BL/6J mice performing a spatial learning task in an eight-arm radial maze. Exposure to vertical, sinusoidal magnetic fields between 7.5 microT and 7.5 mT for 45 min immediately before daily testing sessions caused transient decreases in performance that depended on… CONTINUE READING
