G. Abdel-Rassoul et al., Neurobehavioral effects among inhabitants around mobile phone base stations. Conclusions and recommendations: Inhabitants living nearby mobile phone base stations are at risk of developing neuropsychiatric problems and
some changes in the performance of neurobehavioral functions either by facilitation or inhibition. So, revision of standard guidelines for public
exposure to RER from mobile phone base station antennas and using of NBTB for regular assessment and early detection of biological effects
among inhabitants around the stations are recommended. Full paper here
