Bioelectric Fields, Not the Genome, Spark Morphological Changes

Discussion in 'The EMF Rx' started by bio-fractal-soul-self, Mar 15, 2015.

  1. This is old news (studied in the 1920's in Europe and Russia), but new news for many in the "mainstream". Still nice to see it being explored, though: http://www.nature.com/news/bioelectric-signals-spark-brain-growth-1.17087#/b1

    Just some snippits:

    "Over the years, Michael Levin’s lab at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, has created a carnival’s worth of zoological oddities: a flatworm with four heads, a frog with six legs, a tadpole with a functioning third eye on its tail. But what is perhaps most striking about his curious menagerie is that the biologist has engineered many of these animals not by mutating their genomes but by altering the electrical gradients that cells use to communicate with one another."

    "By modulating those voltage gradients, the researchers were able to stimulate the growth of extra brain tissue, even compensating for brain defects caused by a genetic mutation."

    "The London pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline recently announced that it was launching a program to explore ‘electroceuticals’ — an approach that would use electrical signals to restore health. But those programs are focused on using electricity to alter the activity of nerves, not other types of cells or organ development, notes Levin."

    Now think about all the changes going on now - birth defects, smaller brain size, etc. I have hope that studying the fields of physics, electrobiology, etc. could allow us to reverse the changes, or perhaps cause more positive changes such as a denser, more efficient brain.
