Specific electromagnetic radiation in the wireless signal range increases wakefulness in mice
China Created: 5 Aug 2021
Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) in the environment has increased sharply in recent decades.

The effect of environmental EMR on living organisms remains poorly characterized.

Here, we report the impact of wireless-range EMR on the sleep architecture of mouse.

Prolonged exposure to 2.4-GHz EMR modulated by 100-Hz square pulses at a nonthermal output level results in markedly increased time of wakefulness in mice.

These mice display corresponding decreased time of nonrapid eye movement (NREM) and rapid eye movement (REM).

In contrast, prolonged exposure to unmodulated 2.4-GHz EMR at the same time-averaged output level has little impact on mouse sleep.

These observations identify alteration of sleep architecture in mice as a specific physiological response to prolonged wireless-range EMR exposure.
