The reported outcomes of human volunteer studies addressing effects on the human central nervous system (CNS) are one of the most controversially discussed areas in electromagnetic (EM) research, in particular in view of the growing evidence of non-thermal responses [Regel et al 2007]. On the other hand, some experiments seams to be in direct conflict with these outcomes. The aim of this study was to provide the missing information necessary to enable the comparison of exposure conditions in some of the most cited human volunteer studies published by the research groups at the Universities of Turku, Swinburne, and Zurich. The differences in the exposures are larger than expected based on the published data and may partially explain the differences in the outcome.
