Mobile phones (MP) have become one of the most used devices for communication. Historically, enough proof has ruled out the substantial short-term effect of radiofrequency electromagnetic field (RF-EMF) emitted by MP on the human brain and its cognitive performance. The aim of this mini-review is to examine the different effects of electromagnetic waves emitted by MP on the human brain. We base our arguments on analyzing recent neuroimaging and electroencephalography studies that will elaborate on the effects of the human brain's exposure to the EMF’MP. Several studies indicated an increase in cortical excitability and/or efficiency related to EMF exposure, while other experiments proved that no changes or variations have been found after EMF exposure. Based on a study done in 2020, the exposure to EMF emitted by MP has no abnormal discharges during the real MPR exposure. In contrast, an increase in events number in real exposure has been found.
