In recent years several studies regarding possible effects of radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on cognitive brain function were reported. In many of these studies on awake humans the working tasks were presented visually to the test subjects, e.g., on a computer screen. Therefore, the question of where in the chain of visual perception,(More)
A new head exposure system for double blinded human provocation studies, which requires EEG recording during exposure with GSM900- and UMTS-like signals has been developed and dosimetrically evaluated. The system uses planar patch antennas fixed at 65 mm distance from the subject's head by a special headset, which provides minimum impairment of the test(More)
After animal experiments gave a clear indication that the electric conductivity of brain tissue in the frequency range 800 to 2,450 MHz decreases after death, a measurement series on 20 human brains in the time period between 3 and 10 hours post mortem was performed. Analysis of the measurements obtained on fresh tissue yielded a mean value of grey matter(More)
The reference levels and maximum permissible exposure values for magnetic fields that are currently used have been derived from basic restrictions under the assumption of upright standing body models in a standard posture, i.e. with arms laterally down and without contact with metallic objects. Moreover, if anatomical modelling of the body was used at all,(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the in vivo error of the method as well as the effect of thresholding when obtaining and evaluating standardized periapical radiographs for computer-assisted densitometric image analysis (CADIA). Twenty healthy volunteers participated in an experimental gingivitis study in which neither mechanical nor chemical(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have shown that exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) in the mobile communication frequency range may induce physiological modifications of both spontaneous as well as event-related human electroencephalogram. So far, there are very few peer-reviewed studies on effects of Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA), which is a(More)
