Abstract : The methology of radio biological experiments using radioactive isotopes as neutron sources is discussed as are accelerators and reactors. The physical mechanisms of neutron interaction with biological objects, methods of measuring and calculating the absorbed doses, and are considered 'quality' of irradiation, determined by its biological effectiveness is studied in detail. Measuring and calculating the distribution of absorbed doses according to line at energy loss is discussed. These parameters characterizing the interaction of radiation with the material must be considered during the formulation of qualitative radiobiological investigations. (Author)
