A new microwave device which inactivates brain enzymes rapidly and uniformly is described. From the results obtained with microwave irradiation at two power levels (0.8 kW and 4.5 kW), it has been demonstrated that the high power microwave irradiation has several advantages over the low power irradiation. In its application to neurochemical studies, significant increase in the DOPAC level was found in the irradiated brain, while there were no statistical differences in the levels of NE, DA, 5… CONTINUE READING
