Téléphones mobiles et neurotoxicité pour le système nerveux central

Abstract : Use of mobile telephone technology has become widespread in recent years. The position of the telephone during use justifies public concerns that electromagnetic waves may affect the central nervous system.We review here some studies of the potential neurotoxic effects of the radiofrequencies emitted by mobile phones, that is, of potential injury at structural, functional, electrophysiological, behavioural or neural development levels. The numerous reports do not show any clear effect at any of these levels, and based on what we know today, mobile telephone radiofrequencies do not seem neurotoxic. This review found a wide variety of protocols measuring a wide variety of indicators and characteristics. Further studies are required to reinforce these results and to provide a clear response to public concern. Research in this field should be oriented towards the standardization and reproduction of previous work.
