Eyes on 6G safety as Chinese scientists find terahertz radiation boosts brain cell growth in mice

  • Discovery can help assess new communication technology and also develop therapies to treat brain diseases, Beijing researchers say
  • Separate study by team from Xian Jiaotong University finds terahertz radiation can make young mice ‘smarter’ but same effect not found in old mice
