|Exposure duration||continuous for approx. 50 min|
|Setup||A GSM telephone placed in a leather and vinyl case was mounted with an adjustable rubber EEG head cap on the left side of the subject's head in the normal position of use. The antenna was located over the left posterior temporal lobe. The RF power was switched on and off via a data cable from a laptop.|
|Additional info||EMF exposure and sham exposure sessions in double-blind design were separated by 24 ± 1 h.|
The data showed no significant differences between the mobile phone off and on conditions in reaction times and accuracy.
The authors concluded that a standard mobile phone has no effect on children's cognitive function. The present findings challenge some earlier results (e.g. publication 3601 and publication 4728) suggesting that the electromagnetic field created by an active mobile phone would facilitate cognitive functioning.
