Neuroscientists from Bochum have for the first time
explained the effects of high frequency electromagnetic
fields (HEFs) derived from mobile phones. They have proved
that extremely high-powered electromagnetic fields (EMFs)
indeed influence learning processes on the synaptic level
within the brain, independent from other factors like
Scientists of the Department of Neuroanatomy and Molecular
Brain Research (Professor Dr. med. Rolf Dermietzel) in
cooperation with the Chair of Electromagnetic Theory of the
University of Wuppertal, performed the new study on rats.
For the experiment, rats were placed into differently
powered non-thermal HEFs in the UMTS (Universal Mobile
Communication System) operating range. Synaptic learning and
memory formation were analysed by electrophysiological
methods. Furthermore, all animals were tested for stress
hormone release immediately following the HEF exposure.
Although there was daily training and effortless contact to
the exposure environment, increases in blood derived stress
hormone levels could be detected for all exposed groups. The
stress clearly influences learning and memory formation on
the synaptic level in the rat brain. High powered EMFs (SAR
10 W/kg) also have a significant effect on learning and
memory formation. In contrast to this, weak EMFs (SAR 0 and
2 W/kg) lead to no detectable changes or impairments.
"These results cannot directly be transferred to humans",
explained Dr. Nora Prochnow (Medical Faculty of the RUB).
"But in the animal model, it can be demonstrated that
neuronal mechanisms of synaptic learning can serve as a
target for high powered EMFs," added Prochnow.
However, there is no need for serious concerns: humans are
not exposed to this type of high powered EMFs during daily
mobile phone use.
