Is central nervous information processing influenced by electromagnetic fields of mobile phones?
With introduction of mobile communication, questions on biological effects of electromagnetic fields on the brain and on central nervous information processing are consistently in the focus of the public interest. A workshop took place in the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health on November, 22nd 2000, where internationally recognised experts discussed about this topic. Scientific results obtained in different laboratories were summarised. Conditions of exposition, dosimetry, experimental designs, exposed population and appropriate evaluation of the results were of particular interest. Valid scientific results will be the basis for decisions on standards and research strategies also in the future. The workshop contributed to estimate the actual scientific state of the art on the effects of electromagnetic fields of mobile phones on the human brain and to clarify which research issues have to be solved in the future.
