Exposure to 900MHz electromagnetic fields activates the mkp-1/ERK pathway and causes blood-brain barrier damage and cognitive impairment in rats

" frequency of crossing platforms and the percentage of time spent in the target quadrant were lower in rats exposed to EMF for 28 days than in rats exposed to EMF for 14 days and unexposed rats .. Moreover, 28 days of EMF exposure induced cellular edema and neuronal cell organelle degeneration in the rat .. In addition, damaged BBB permeability, which resulted in albumin and HO-1 extravasation were observed in the hippocampus and cortex .. EMF exposure for 28 days induced the expression of mkp-1, resulting in ERK dephosphorylation."
