This is a human provocation study that investigated whether RF exposure influences brain activity and ability to sustain attention. A total of 56 students participated in the study involving electroencephalographic recording and psychomotor testing whilst being exposed to Wi-Fi or sham. The exposure was at a frequency of 2.4 gigahertz (GHz), and a maximum peak SAR of around 15 mW/kg at the head region. This exposure level is around 0.75% of the general public exposure limit in the Australian RF Standard. The authors found that no effects on brain activity and attention were observed as a result of RF exposure.
