60 volunteers from Rimbach village in the Bavarian Forest participated in a long term controlled study (approx. one and a half years long) carried out by INUS Medical after the installation of a new cell phone base station.
After the activation of the GSM base station, the levels of the stress hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline increased significantly during the first six months; the levels of the precursor dopamine decreased substantially.The initial levels were not restored even after one and a half years.

This study examined EHS EMF-specific cognitive correlates(e.g perception, judgment), discrimination ability and neurobiological(biological study of the nervous system) parameters in order to get further insight into the pathophysiology(mechanisms of why condition develops and progresses) of electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
The results demonstrated significant cognitive and neurobiological differences pointing to a higher genuine individual vulnerability of electromagnetic hypersensitive patients

In this cross-sectional study tests were carried out on whether long-term and/or short-term use of wireless telephones was associated with changes in the serum transthyretin level, indicating altered transthyretin concentration in the cerebrospinal fluid(the fluid in the brain), possibly reflecting an effect of radiation.
