Mobile phones have become an integral part of daily life for most people. This dissertation examines the potential impact of an in-call 3G phone on brain activity and emotions. The results reveal that radiation peaks created by an in-call phone are registered in the brain. There is also an increase in brain activity when someone holds an in-call phone to his or her ear. Mobile phone use is also associated with negative emotions. Further research is required to determine the nature and significance of these connections.
