Preferred Abstract (Original): 
Abstract Many controversial studies have been conducted on the effect of the radio waves (RF) emitted from mobile phones on the health of animals and human beings. This present study I has been focused on the effects of radio waves on the brain of developing mice. For this purpose 15 mice of both sexes at their day of birth were divided into three groups. Two groups were exposed daily to RF for 30 or 60 min for 25 days consequently and one group left was treated as control group without any exposure. Animal's memory was tested by maze game for 5 days and all animal brains were tested by CT scans. Results show a significant difference in brain size and memory between exposed and non exposed animals (t =-2.677,df=6, p=0.037), (df=2,F=2.30 ,P=0.156) consequently. These data reveal that there are serious effects of the RF on the physiological and anatomical development of brains of the mice.
