STRIPLINE TECHNIQUES IN THE STUDY OF MICROWAVE BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS ON ISOLATED NEURAL PREPARATIONS.
The action has been studied of microwaves on small isolated preparations, in some cases recording from a single neuron. There are several advantages in using the stripline irradiation technique. Most importantly, the power to the preparation and the electrical activity of the preparation are monitored during irradiation providing information about direct action on the preparation. Microwave input power levels need be only a few watts for significant levels of absorbed power. The extremely low leakage from the stripline allows for essentially artifact-free electrical recording and for insured investigator safety.
