The Electromagnetic Sense | Electricity of Life

Part 1 of our exploration of the awareness organisms have of the electromagnetic forces in their environment. Starting with our own species, we will examine some experiments in bioelectromagnetics which will likely come as a surprise to most viewers. This episode will focus on behavioral research, while part 2 will provide knowledge of cellular mechanisms of magnetoreception, and some additional behavioral studies.
