Scientists discover that our brain waves can be sent by electrical fields
"...it appears the brain may be using the fields to communicate without synaptic transmissions, gap junctions or diffusion." ...
According to the researchers, this is evidence that the propagation mechanism for the activity is consistent with the electrical field.
"The results indicate that electric fields (ephaptic effects) are capable of mediating propagation of self-regenerating neural waves," they write. ...
If their findings, which are reported in The Journal of Neuroscience, can be expounded in further studies, it could help us to better understand how brain waves are associated with things like memory, epilepsy, and healthy physiology.
