Abstract
Three experiments failed to provide consistent evidence for an effect of 2.70 GHz pulsed microwave radiation up to 20 mW/square cm on pentylenetetrazol-induced seizures or on the efficacy of chlordiazepoxide for counteracting such seizures. Microwave radiation counteracted the hypothermic effects of chlordiazepoxide without altering its antiseizure efficacy. This underscores the dissociation between thermal and pharmacological effects of microwaves.
