Effects of 902 MHz electromagnetic field emitted by cellular telephones on response times in humans.
Published in: Neuroreport 2000; 11 (2): 413-415
Aim of study (acc. to author)
continuous for about 1 h
Distance between exposed object and exposure source
GSM telephone was mounted on the subject's head in normal position for use. The antenna was located about 4 cm apart from the head, over the posterior areas of the left temporal lobe. The RF power was switched on and off via a data cable from a laptop.
subject participated in two testing sessions with or without RF exposure which were separated by 24 hours.
Main outcome of study (acc. to author)
Study funded by
Academy of Finland
University of Turku, Finland
