OBJECTIVE: To study the effects of exposure to high-frequency radiation on neurobehavioral function of the exposed workers and its measurement in evaluating occupational hazards caused by it.
METHODS: Four neurobehavioral functions were tested for the workers exposed to high-frequency radiation with Neurobehavioral Core Tests Battery recommended by WHO.
RESULTS: Scores for various indicators in exposed workers were significantly lower than those in controls, and correlated to the detection of neurasthenia in the exposed workers, to certain extent.
CONCLUSION: Changes in neurobehavioral function in workers exposed to high-frequency radiation can reflect its important adverse effects.
