pineal gland function. Dr. Anderson has had extensive experience in EMF research, including the development and use of exposure systems for in vitro and whole animal studies. He serves on a number of national and international committees on EMF and health, including the National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP), International Conference on High Voltage Systems (CICVS), International Member of Radio Science, Commission K (USRI), and the World Health Organization working group (WHO).

DANIEL A. DRISCOLL, Ph.D., is a licensed professional engineer (New York), specialist in electrical and biomedical engineering, and an employee of the State of New York Department of Public Service. He serves as head of the department's electric and magnetic fields task force. He has had extensive experience in the evaluation of environmental electric and magnetic fields and in the interaction of engineering principles, regulatory issues, and public policy.

FRED H. GAGE, Ph.D., is a professor in the Laboratory of Genetics at the Salk Institute, La Jolla, California. He has conducted extensive studies aimed at treatment of central nervous system disorders, such as the use of gene therapy using intracerebral grafting of genetically modified fibroblasts and the use of neural transplants. His recent research focus has been on molecular and cellular approaches to understanding neurological factors in aging and Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Gage is particularly interested in alterations to the central nervous system that may lead to behavioral and/or learning disabilities.

RICHARD L. GARWIN, Ph.D., is a fellow emeritus of the Thomas J. Watson Research Center, IBM Research Division, Yorktown Heights, New York. His research has contributed to many scientific advances, including work involving instruments and electronics for research in nuclear and low-temperature physics, the establishment of the nonconservation of parity and the demonstration of some of its striking consequences, computer elements and systems, superconducting devices, communication systems, the behavior of solid helium, the detection of gravitational radiation, the design of nuclear weapons, and military technology. He has written numerous books, published over 200 articles and has been granted 42 U.S. patents. Dr. Garwin has served on numerous advisory committees and panels, among them the President's Science Advisory Committee (1962-65 and 1969-72) and the Defense Science Board (1966-69). He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He received from the U.S. government the 1996 R.V. Jones Intelligence Award for "scientific acumen, applied with art, in the cause of freedom."
