Effects of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation on Neurotransmitters in the Brain

As they analyze the conclusions of different studies for different neurotransmitters, they reach different mini-conclusions, such as:

" In summary, these studies indicate that EMR can lead to metabolic disorders of monoamine neurotransmitters in the brain, depending on the intensity of radiation exposure, and might in theory result in abnormal emotional behavior." {Credits 1}

" Together, these results suggest that long-term exposure to EMR may lead to abnormal norepinephrine and epinephrine contents in the brain, depending on the dose of radiation." {Credits 1}

" These studies suggest that long-term exposure to microwave radiation can lead to an increase in 5-HT in the brain, indicating a disorder in the metabolism of the neurotransmitter." {Credits 1}

" These data suggest that EMR can lead to a decrease in excitatory amino acid neurotransmitters in the hippocampus, which may affect the excitatory-inhibitory balance of neurons, thus causing a decline in learning and memory ability." {Credits 1}

" These data further suggest the neurotransmitter disruption in the hippocampus might result in impairment of cognitive function caused by long-term microwave exposure." {Credits 1}

" Overall, the above studies suggest that EMR can cause metabolic disorders of the inhibitory neurotransmitters GABA and glycine, which may lead to neuronal dysfunction by affecting the neuronal excitation-inhibition balance." {Credits 1}

" These studies further suggested that disorders of Ach synthesis and metabolism are an important part of the cognitive dysfunction caused by EMR." {Credits 1}

" This further suggests that both endogenous opioid neurotransmitter and cholinergic systems in the brain are involved in microwave-induced spatial memory deficits." {Credits 1}


" In a recent review, Leach et al. analyzed 2,653 papers captured in the database examine the bioeffect outcomes in the 300 MHz-3 GHz range. The results showed three times more biological “Effect” than “No Effect” papers (125). Although some studies report no effect on the tested indicators, there are studies find the significant effect in many cases." {Credits 1}
