dc.description.abstract Dose-response models are used widely to assign risks with corresponding levels of irradiation. The effects of higher doses of radiation are well documented, however, the effects of much lower doses have not been established. This literature review focuses on the proposed relationship between low doses of radiation and cognitive endowment. Contrasting previous research, some more recent studies have been able to present evidence proposing that levels of irradiation generally considered of being safe, could hinder cognitive endowment. The evidence from the studies suggests that regarding cognition, a person is most sensitive to the adverse effects of irradiation during the gestational weeks 8-25. This observation and the plausibility of the empirical strategy is supported by evidence from the fields of embryology and brain development. en
