Thirty-two miniature pigs were trained by shock avoidance conditioning to traverse a two-chambered shuttlebox. Eight unshielded pigs (whole-body exposed) received midline tissue doses (MTD) of about 13, 000 rads of pulsed, mixed gammaneutron radlations to the head and trunk. Eight head-shielded and eight trunkshielded pigs received doses to the unsh!eldcd part of the body that were equivalent to the doses received by unshielded animals. Four trunk-shielded pigs received 6000 rads to the head… CONTINUE READING
