Abstract

At the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, a research program designed to study the biological effects of non-ionizing radiation has focused on the effects of very short but high peak-power bursts of microwave energy. Cardiovascular, ocular and behavioral effects have been studied. This paper presents some of the behavioral effects that have been observed.
