Abstract : A focus of effort in this laboratory has been the study of complex operant behavior in rats during, as opposed to following, exposure to MWR. So that the neurophysiological, neurotransmitter and behavioral work underway here and in other laboratories can be put in some meaningful perspective, the aim of our effort was to develop a consistent set of conclusions regarding the dose/response relationships between MWR exposure and behavioral alterations, The design of the experiments was such as to obtain data at MWR dose rates for which thermal factors might be expected to be significant.
