Abstract : Different sensitivity to the ionizing radiation on the various parts of the brain were studied, electroencephalographically. Between the frontal cortex and the hippocampus, different transition of the sleepy stage was demonstrated, suggesting dissociated response in these regions, by irradiation over 1000r. Subcortical structure is remained to be studied for future investigation. (Author)
