First it demonstrates that SAR, that is used for assessing the thermal effect of human exposure, was incongruous to quantify the neurophysiological effect of EMF exposure as effects are clearly caused by other mechanisms.
Some of the changes in the brain detected in this study (that includes real or sham exposures blind to the subjects) are: diminished functional connection strength, whereas its diversity is slightly enhanced for most of the 90 regions, increased normalized clustering coefficient, while normalized characteristic path length remained unchanged (that could indicate hyper-connectivity, unnecessarily beneficial to normal information processing). Increased clustering coefficient at the contralateral medial frontal lobes. Suppression of the information exchange ability at the primary visual cortex but increased or unaffected ability at the other hubs in the dorsal visual pathway, etc, etc.
