(HealthDayNews) -- With all the bad news about cellular phones, here's some positive information to talk about.
According to the journal Neuroreport, the psychology department at the University of Turku in Finland measured the effects of cellular phone use on 48 healthy volunteers. The researchers gave the subjects 12 tests to take, both before and after a long conversation on a cellular phone.
According to their report, talking on the cell phone resulted in faster reaction times and better results on mental arithmetic problems. Overall, the subjects' brains seemed to work faster and better after using the cell phone.
