Abstract

1. The putative effects of prenatal exposure to magnetic field (MF) have recently received much interest. In the present study, mice were exposed to a MF of 50 mT during gestation (0-19 days). 2. After the exposure was terminated, mothers and offspring were returned to normal laboratory conditions. We then determined changes in striatal levels of dopamine (DA) and its metabolite 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) in the offspring. 3. Our results indicate that prenatal exposure to MF increases levels of DA and DOPAC in the striatum at 4, 8 and 12 weeks postnatally.
