Non thermal (NT) effect of direct radiation 4 Hz-modulated 90-160 GHz of Millimeter Waves (MMW) and preliminary MMW-treated physiological solution (PS) influence were studied on snail isolated neuron, rat's brain tissue hydration and skin penetration. It was shown that the 4 Hz-modulated low intensity 90-160 GHz MMW direct radiation and MMW-treated PS leads to on single neuron shrinkage, skin and brain tissue dehydration. On the basis of obtained data it was suggested that the cell bathing aqua medium serve as a target through which the NT effect of MMW on cell hydration is realized. The MMW-induced brain tissue dehydration can considering as consequence of MMW-induced skin water structural changes leading to unknown messenger formation able to modulate the brain cell hydration. The extrasensitivity of cell hydration to low intensity of MMW radiation allow to recommend cell hydration as a cellular marker for estimation of the NT biological effect of MMW on cells and organisms. © Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.
