Rats were exposed to 1.3 gHz microwave energy to assess the uptake of several neutral polar substances in certain areas of the brain. A quantitative, radioactive isotope method, which uses an internal standard, was employed to measure the loss of test substances to brain tissue. Single, 20 min exposure, to either pulsed or continuous wave (CW) microwave energy induced an increase in the uptake of D-mannitol at average power densities of less than 3.0 mW/sq, cm. The permeability change was…

The Effect of 1.6 GHz Radiation on Neurotransmitters in Discrete Areas of the Rat Brain.
TLDR
Rats exposed to 1.6 GHz radiation at a measured power density of 80 mW/sq cm for 10 minutes were exposed to microwave-induced hyperthermia and Hippocampal serotonin was decreased but not in the hyperthermal animals as was the dopamine content of the corpus striatum and hypothalamus.
Temporary alteration of cerebrovascular permeability to plasma protein during drug-induced seizures.
TLDR
The alteration in vascular permeability was reversible, as indicated by the rapid decline in thalamicalbumin-1251 activity minutes after seizure arrest, and the evidence suggested that a significant amount of the albumin-l251 returned to blood.
Effects of Microwave Exposures on the Central Nervous System of Beagles
ABSTRACTYoung beagles exposed to 2450 MHz microwave radiation were studied to determine the effects of several exposures on their performance and on subsequent electroencephalographic records. The
NEURAL FUNCTION AND BEHAVIOR: DEFINING THE RELATIONSHIP
TLDR
An association between changes in behavior and in brain permeability is found and the relationship between neural function and behavior is defined and a first approach to answering the question of rf energy-induced effects is made.
Brain uptake of radiolabeled amino acids, amines, and hexoses after arterial injection.
TLDR
Saturability of D-glucose uptake was demonstrated and evidence presented that all of the five hexoses measurably taken up by brain shared a common carrier, two blood-brain barrier carrier systems for amino acids.
MICROWAVE‐INDUCED ACOUSTIC EFFECTS IN MAMMALIAN AUDITORY SYSTEMS AND PHYSICAL MATERIALS *
TLDR
A bioengineering approach is applied for establishing the threshold of the effect in man and animals as a function of pulse power or energy, pulse shape, and carrier frequency and whether the stimulation is due to direct action of the em fields on the nervous system or to transduced acoustic energy acting on the auditory system.

TLDR
A two-plate stripline is used to determine wide-band radio-frequency absorption characteristics of 96-390-g rats and brain-phantom prolate spheroidal bodies, implying that whole animal absorption is a size- and shape-dependent phenomenon.
Pathological changes in neurons, neuroglia, and blood-brain barrier induced by x-irradiation of heads of monkeys.
TLDR
Of key interest here has been the question of the relative importance of direct and indirect neuronal injury: direct by primary alteration of nerve cells, and indirect from changes secondary to alterations in neuroglia or the blood-brain barrier.
Saturation of blood brain barrier transport of amino acids in phenylketonuria.
TLDR
Saturation of the large neutral amino acid blood brain barrier transport system may result in a brain deprivation in infancy of those amino acids using the same carrier transport system as phenylalanine and thus be causally related to mental retardation in PKU.
Generation of Elastic Waves by Transient Surface Heating
When the surface of a body is subjected to transient heating (e.g., by electron bombardment or rf absorption) elastic waves are produced as a result of surface motion due to thermal expansion. This
