Cellular phone electromagnetic field effects on bioelectric activity of human brain. med./biol. By: Lebedeva NN, Sulimov AV, Sulimova OP, Kotrovskaya TI, Gailus T
Published in: Crit Rev Biomed Eng 2000; 28 (1-2): 323 - 337 ( PubMed Entry , Journal web site )
Aim of study (according to author)
To study EEG reactions to cellular phone electromagnetic field exposure.
- effects on the neurological system: EEG
General category: mobile phone
| 902.4 MHz |
exposure duration: continuous for 15 min
|power flux density: 0.06 mW/cm² |
FIELD View further expo parameters
partial body exposure: head
investigation on living organism
- effects on the neurological system: EEG (bioelectrical activity; multichannel (global) correlation dimension)
investigated organ system: brain/CNS
time of investigation: during and after exposure
Main outcome of study (according to author)
The data indicate that bioelectrical human brain activity is modified under electromagnetic field cellular phone exposure. A significant increase of global correlation dimension during the exposure and afterexposure period was discovered (more pronounced in the case of "eyes closed"). That can be viewed as the manifestation of cortex activation under cellular phone exposure.
