Background: In order to investigate possible consequences of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiations of Wi-Fi modem devices on the information processing speed of university students, six hundred teenagers (14-17 years old) selected by cluster random sampling. They further classified into two groups consisting one control group (without Wi-Fi modem at home; n=200) and experimental group (with Wi-Fi modem at home; n=400). Methods: By means of reaction time machine and KDT test, the speed of…

Perceptions and Experiences About Device-Emitted Radiofrequency Radiation and Its Effects on Selected Brain Health Parameters in Southwest Nigeria
TLDR
The study showed that respondents had experienced significant and negative effects of RFR on their mental health, indicating a critical and urgent need to educate the public on the subject.
Histological and Histochemical Study of Radiofrequency Radiation effects on the Hippocampus during the Pre- and Postnatal Stages of Development
TLDR
Findings from the current research showed that RFR-exposure did not produce teratogenic or neurodegenerative effects within the hippocampus, and this was evident from the study of the hippocampus’ histoarchitectural organisation, morphologies of the cells as well as their spatial distribution.
Consequences of 2.4-2.48 Ghz non-ionizing radiation of Wi-Fi router devices on the information processing speed in adolescents.
TLDR
It has been demonstrated that the everyday radiofrequency electromagnetic field emitted by Wi-Fi devices has the ability to affect the normal functioning of young people’s brain.

Effects of radiation emitted by WCDMA mobile phones on electromagnetic hypersensitive subjects
TLDR
Considering the analyzed physiological data, the subjective symptoms surveyed, and the percentages of those who believed they were being exposed, 32 min of RF radiation emitted by WCDMA mobile phones demonstrated no effects in either EHS or non-EHS subjects.
WI-FI ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS EXERT GENDER RELATED ALTERATIONS ON EEG
TLDR
The present data support the idea that Wi-Fi signal may influence normal physiology through changes in gender related cortical excitability, as reflected by alpha and beta EEG frequencies.
Electromagnetic fields (EMF): do they play a role in children's environmental health (CEH)?
The relationship between adolescents’ well-being and their wireless phone use: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
To safeguard young people’s well-being, it is recommended that they limit their use of cellphones and cordless phones to less than 15 minutes daily, and employing a speaker-phone device for longer daily use.
Multigenerational effects of whole body exposure to 2.14 GHz W‐CDMA cellular phone signals on brain function in rats
TLDR
It was concluded that under the experimental conditions applied, multigenerational whole body exposure to 2.14 GHz W‐CDMA signals for 20 h/day did not cause any adverse effects on the F1, F2, and F3 offspring.
The effect of the duration of exposure to the electromagnetic field emitted by mobile phones on human attention
TLDR
The results seem to suggest that attention functions may be differentially enhanced after exposing to the electromagnetic field emitted by mobile phones, and this transient facilitation effect might be dose dependent.
Prevalence of subjective poor health symptoms associated with exposure to electromagnetic fields among university students
TLDR
No significantly higher prevalence of self‐reported symptoms was found in individuals who had used mobile phones, video display terminals or cordless phones more frequently than others, which can confirm the results obtained in provocative studies which indicated the role of psychological factors in electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
Neurobehavioral effects among inhabitants around mobile phone base stations.
902 MHz mobile phone does not affect short term memory in humans
TLDR
The EMF had no effect on RTs or on the accuracy of the subjects' answers; the inability to replicate previous findings could have been caused by lack of actual EMF effects or the magnitude of effects being at the sensitivity threshold of the test used.
Subjective complaints of people living near mobile phone base stations in Poland
TLDR
The explanation why there was no correlation between the electric field strength and frequency of subjective symptoms but found a correlation between subjective symptoms and distance from base station needs further studies.
