Effects of Exposure to Extremely Low-Frequency Magnetic Field of 4 μT Intensity on Spatial Memory and Learning in Mice

M. Tehranipour and M. Kafaee    

Abstract: Extremely low-frequency magnetic fields (ELFMF) have been reported to produce a variety of biological effects. In the present study, the effects of extremely low-frequency magnetic field (ELFMF) of 4 μT intensity on spatial memory in mice brain (20 min) with using an platform finding task were examined. Thirty mouse were divided to control, experimental 1, 2 (n = 10). Comparable groups of mice were exposed for 20 min to ELFMF. For similar conditions control group were situated into set of ELFMFs for 20 min but with out exposure of magnetic field. The total time spent exploring the platform in the starting phase for all groups was estimated. Present results demonstrate (Experimental 1, 2) that exposed ELFMF are significantly better in practice related to spatial memory in comparison with control group.
