Abstract

The effect of homogeneous static magnetic fields of 8000 and 10 Oe strength on the establishment of conditioned electrodefensive reflex has been studied in rats. A 5 min application of the magnetic field after conditioning decelerated the establishment of the reflex; treated animals needed three times more time to acquire the reflex than did the untreated controls. The latency of conditioned reactions became longer and the rate of reaction slower in the treated animals. Previously acquired conditioned reactions were reduced by the subsequent application of 8000 and 10 Oe magnetic fields. As regards establishment of the conditioned reflex, there was no significant difference between the respective effects of the 8000 and the 10 Oe fields.
