In this study, we investigated the influence of a high-frequency electromagnetic field (HFEMF) at 2.45 GHz on PC12VG cells neurite outgrowth in vitro. We studied the average length of neuritis, the longest neurite length and the percentage of neurite-bearing cells cultured for 7 days after exposure to HFEMF at average specific absorption rates of 1 and 10 W/kg for 4h. Our results suggest that exposure to HFEMF has no significant effect on neurite outgrowth in PC12VG cells.
