The effect of nanosecond repetitive pulsed microwave radiation (RPM, 10 GHz, 4000 pulses per day, pulse repetition frequencies of 13 and 22 Hz, peak power flux density of 1500 W/cm2 and a carrier frequency of) on the brain of laboratory mice was studied. The effect was assessed in dynamics by the change in mice behavioral reactions by open field method and by the level of corticosterone in the blood serum of animals. It was found that after 3, 5 and 7 day of RPM irradiation the behavioral reactions of mice and the corticosterone level were changed in different directions. The effect depended on the pulse repetition rate of the RPMs. The data obtained indicate the development of different phases of the general adaptation syndrome (stress) in the mice organism after nanosecond RPM irradiation.v
