A mobile phone, also known as cell phone or hand phone is among the most popular electrical devices used by people all over the world. During recent years, the use of mobile phones has increased substantially and longtime exposure to the electromagnetic fields produced by them and their base stations is a matter of concern. So it has become very important to study the effect of radiations emitted by mobile phone on human head. Brainwaves due to numerous neurons are a kind of electrical activity. This electrical activity of brain can be recorded with the help of polysomonography EEG (electroencephalogram) machine.
EEG is used to acquire the brain signals. Brain signals are measured by placing electrodes on the scalp. These EEG signal give the micro voltage difference between different parts of brain in a non-invasive manner. The brain activity measured in this way is being currently analyzed for a possible diagnosis and psychiatric diseases. This research discussed on the analysis conducted to study the effect of mobile phone at different charging levels on human brain. The experiment was conducted in a laboratory using. This discusses the effect of EM radiations emitted from mobile phone (GSM GT S7392) at high battery level and at low battery towards human brain. Electroencephalogram machine is used to monitor and capture the brain signals at different stimuli. The signals were obtained under four conditions. 1. Mobile phone ringing at high battery level 2. Call ongoing at high battery level 3. Mobile phone ringing at low battery level 4. Call ongoing at low battery level The signals obtained under four different conditions are analyzed and processed using different signal processing techniques. The experimental findings show that the effect of mobile emitted EM radiations is more intense at low battery level especially during ringing mode P3-O1 and T5-O1 channels are more affected and when call is ongoing then P4-O2 and T6-O2 channels are severely affected.
