Acute exposure of rats to microwaves (12.6 chr, 2375 MHz, power density 1 mW/cm2) induced the retrograde amnesia. It was show the role of opioidergic, benzodiazepine, GABAergic and cholinergic components in the amnesic effects of microwaves. Piracetam (100 mg/kg, i. p.) and oxiracetam (10 mg/kg, i. p.) prevented the negative effects of microwaves on memory processes.
