Allan H. Frey (born 1935) is an American biophysicist and neuroscientist known for his research and writing during the Cold War on the nature of the microwave auditory effect, also called the Frey effect. He worked at General Electric's Advanced Electronics Center at Cornell University. He was effectively silenced by the United States government.
Frey studied the phenomenon of "hearing" electromagnetic waves when near radar beams. He found that the sounds were not being produced from the eardrum but directly by the nerve cells in the brain itself. This came to be known as the microwave auditory effect or Frey effect.
In 1975, Frey published a study in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences stating that microwaves "with certain modulations" could cause leakage in the blood–brain barrier, with possibly lethal consequences. In one experiment, he synchronized microwaves with the myocardial rhythm of a frog heart, and found that the heart stopped beating. In another experiment, he microwaved cats and found that it had a huge effect on emotions.
