The study group consisted of 36 women and 35 men (age range: 18-45 years). 22 women and 16 men reported symptoms they specifically related to mobile phone use. This group was described as electrosensitive. The rest of the participants reported no mobile phone-related symptoms. In choosing this two groups, it should be established whether electrosensitive persons would be able to differentiate exposure conditions from sham exposure.
Modulation type: pulsed
ばく露時間: continuous for 3 h
|ばく露時間||continuous for 3 h|
GSM signal including periods of DTX and Non-DTX
|チャンバの詳細||The exposure areas in two separate rooms were shielded with screens, covered with RF absorbing material.|
|ばく露装置の詳細||The exposure was directed to the left hemisphere of the head.|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|
|Additional information||Each participant attended three different sessions, one habituation session and two subsequent exposure sessions randomly selected for sham or RF exposure.|
Concerning sleep, there was a prolonged latency to reach the first cycle of deep sleep in exposed volunteers. The amount of deep sleep (sleep stage 4) was also decreased in exposed subjects.
Subjects who were not characterized as electrosensitive reported more headaches during exposures versus sham exposure. Neither the electrosensitive group nor the not electrosensitive group was able to detect the true exposure status.
