Title Evaluation of neuropsychological factors in a group of workers occupationally exposed to radiofrequencies
Original title Valutazione di alcuni parametri neuropsicologici in un gruppo di lavoratori metalmeccanici professionalmente esposti a radiofrequenze [in Italian]
Bibliographic information Sep.-Oct. 1990, Vol.81, No.5, p.414-421. Illus. 12 ref.
Abstract The effects on behaviour of exposure to radiofrequency radiation (magnetic field-strength range: 0.08-2.00A/m) were studied in a group of foundry workers following prolonged exposure to radiofrequencies. The results of behavioural tests revealed significant differences between the exposed and control groups as regards neuropsychological performance. Anxiety and depression tests, however, indicated no pathological alterations, in contrast to previous observations.
