To elucidate a potential role of dysfunctional cortical regulations in mediating electromagnetic hypersensitivity in human.
Cortical excitability was measured in subjectively electrosensitive patients (n=23) and two control groups (n=49) differing in their level of unspecific health complaints.
Electrosensitive patients showed reduced intracortical facilitation as compared to both control groups, while motor thresholds and intracortical inhibition were unaffected.
These results evidence that altered central nervous system function may account for symptom manifestation in subjectively electrosensitive patients.
