Medical/biological Study (experimental study)
Hypoactivity of Wistar rats exposed to mobile phone on elevated plus maze. med./biol.
By: Kumar RS, Sareesh NN, Nayak S, Mailankot M
Aim of study (according to author)
To study whether mobile phone exposure causes changes in behavior of rats in the elevated plus maze.
The animals were divided into two groups of six rats each: control group and exposure group. Three of the exposed rats were tested one hour after the last exposure while the other three were tested 24 h after exposure. Controls were tested along with the 24 h post exposure group.
cognitive/behavioural endpoints: anxiety (behavior in elevated plus maze)
General category: mobile phone, digital mobile phone, GSM
Field characteristics Parameters
900 - 1800 MHz
exposure duration: 50 missed calls of 1 min each /day for 4 weeks - with 15 s intervall between the calls
animal (species/strain): rat/Wistar albino
whole body exposure
Behavior in elevated plus maze (time spent in the open arms); number of defecation pellets
investigation on living organism
Time of investigation: after exposure
Main outcome of study (according to author)
The preliminary data indicated that the mobile phone exposure induced behavioral changes in rats, expressed as a deficit in open arm exploration in the elevated plus maze. Additionally, the number of defecation pellets of exposed animals was increased compared to control animals
