Event Abstract

ASSESSMENT OF LOCOMOTOR ACTIVITY IN MICE BRAIN

  • 1 Shri Ramswaroop Memorial University, CSE, India

Cellular phone radiates an average power of 0.2-0.6 watts when it is operated very close to the head. And background levels are sharply imprecise, with approx. 40-50 percent of radiated phone energy absorbed into the brain. To assess the spontaneous locomotors activity (SLA) of the mice brain after the acute exposure of cellular telephone (GSM900MHz) is the major objective of our study.10 mice of the 30 days old (average weight 30gm) were grouped as control and EMR and they were habitualised for one week prior to start the experiment in well designed circular cell phone exposure (CCPE) cage. In the cage, cellular phone was placed in the center and mice were allowed to move around the device within 10 cm. radius. 3 hours/day exposure was applied to the mice of EMR group by the cellular phone in CCPE cage. The exposure to GSM900MHz EMR from CP in rats caused a decrease in total distance travelled (12%), moving time (23%), rearing (25%) and an increase in time resting (10%) as compared to rats in the control group. Simultaneous without GSM900MHz EMR from CP in rats increased the total distance travelled (9%), moving time (4%) and rearing (6%) and decreased the resting time (1%) as compared to rats exposed with GSM900MHz EMR. Although distance travelled, moving time and rearing decreased in the sham group compared with controls; these parameters remained decreased as compared to sham group. No significant changes on any of these parameters were observed in rats exposed to GSM900 EMR as compared to controls.
