Critical Flicker Frequency in Albino Rats Following Prenatal X-Irradiation

Abstract

Young adult rats that had been exposed to 50, 100, 150, or 200 R of X-rays on day 16 of gestation were compared to three types of control animals on a test of critical flicker frequency (CFF). It was found that CFF increased with increased dose. Differences between and within experimental and control groups are discussed. A hypothesis of why there was an increase rather than a decrease in the CFF following prenatal exposure to X-rays was suggested.
