Brain Res 601(1-2):321-324, 1993

We examined the effect of long-term exposure to radio frequency radiation 147 MHz and its sub-harmonics 73.5 and 36.75 MHz amplitude modulated at 16 and 76 Hz (30-35 days, 3 h per day) on cholinergic systems in developing rat brain.

A significant decrease in acetylcholine esterase activity was found in exposed rats as compared to the control. Decrease in acetylcholine esterase (AChE) activity was independent of carrier wave frequencies. A short-term exposure did not have any significant effect on AChE activity.
