Abstract

Mobile phone ‘talk’ and ‘listen’ mode signals are pulsed modulated microwaves, sharing the same pulse modulation frequencies at 8 and 217 Hz. However, listen mode has an extra 2 Hz modulation. Our previous study using EEG visual scoring and spectral analysis showed talk-mode to delay sleep onset (Hung et al. 2007). Here, we examine the sleep EEG itself, especially during stage 2 (S2) and slow-wave sleep (SWS), in the first non-rapid eye movement sleep, to see if there are further differential effects of these phone signals.
