Research from other laboratories has shown that the radio waves from a mobile phone affect the electrical activity of the sleeping brain (the ‘EEG’)’. However, these studies have mostly used one standard radio frequency, whereas the phone signal differs depending on whether we are talking, listening or leave the phone in ‘stand-by’ mode. We have separated out these three signals and find different effects on the EEG. This research program, in conjunction with the Centre for Mobile Communications Research, here at Loughborough, has shown that 30 minutes exposure to the ‘talk’ mode signal delays sleep onset.
