    1365: Connecting the Dots: The Volkow Brain Scans in Perspective

    From Louis Slesin, Microwave News:

    “Cell Phones Affect Brain Activity.” That headline has
    appeared all over the world since Nora Volkow published
    a PET scan of a brain lit up by a cell phone last month.
    Her colorful graphics, published in the high impact Journal
    of the American Medical Association (JAMA), guaranteed
    Volkow a large and attentive audience.

    But all the hoopla shouldn’t obscure the fact that
    for more than a decade many others, notably
    Peter Achermann’s group at the University of
    Zurich, have shown similar types of radiation-induced
    changes in the brain as well as much more.

    Indeed, in December 2002, exactly the same headline ran
    in Tages Anzeiger, a widely read Swiss newspaper.
