Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are one of the main environmental pollutants inducing adverse effects on life quality. Waves emitted from industrial and domestic equipments always expose humans to the risk of some diseases. The central nervous system (CNS) is one of the structures sensitive to these waves, which could be damaged seriously. Complexity of the neural structure demands more researches based on morphological and histological changes. Important factors involved in EMFs effects on neural function concern the type, frequency, intensity of waves and duration of the exposure. Surely, increased dosage of the electromagnetic waves results in severe consequences on the function of brain neurons. However, antioxidants may prevent chronic injuries via different methods. The critical periods of fetal, childhood, or pregnancy are more susceptible to irreparable risks of electric magnetic waves. There are several strategies to reduce effects of such waves, by using antioxidants, for instance. However, different theories have been presented on their efficiency due to the abundance of antioxidants available in nature. In the present review, we conclude that even low-dosages of EMFs would have negative effects on CNS. According to some previous studies, various dosages of antioxidants have different effects on neural function leading to various theories on this subject. Keywords Author Keywords:Electromagnetic fields; Central nervous system; Antioxidants
