The brain and nervous system are considered by many scientists to be the most sensitive target organ for microwave radiation.  This is a partial list of morphologic and neurophysiologic nervous system effects from microwave radio frequency radiation. This includes damage to  hippocampus (spatial memory) and cerebellar structures, impairment of long-term potentiation (involved in learning), decrease in neurotransmitter concentrations (mood), reduction in synaptic vesicle number, demyelination (nerve cell protection), oxidative stress, DNA damage and stem cell injury with disruption of development. Behavioral changes are also included. There are critical periods of vulnerability in the complex development of the brain which can be damaged resulting in significant varied effects on mature brain function. Relevant review articles on brain development and toxic exposures are included at the end of this list.
