The physics of baseball
The illumination of the ordinary—of why the sky is blue or why the stars shine—is not the least important role of physics and physicists. Then can't we add to the list of deeper queries some of theExpand

Biophysical limits on athermal effects of RF and microwave radiation.
Using biophysical criteria, I show that continuous radiofrequency (RF) and microwave radiation with intensity less than 10 mW/cm(2) are unlikely to affect physiology significantly through athermalExpand

  • 1 March 2002
Many biological systems can be expected to exhibit resonance behavior involving the mechanical vibration of system elements. The natural frequencies of such resonances will, generally, be in theExpand

Rectification and signal averaging of weak electric fields by biological cells.
Oscillating electric fields can be rectified by proteins in cell membranes to give rise to a dc transport of a substance across the membrane or a net conversion of a substrate to a product. ThisExpand

Theoretical limits on the threshold for the response of long cells to weak extremely low frequency electric fields due to ionic and molecular flux rectification.
Understanding exposure thresholds for the response of biological systems to extremely low frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields is a fundamental problem of long-standing interest. We considerExpand

  • 1992
V. V. Lednev has proposed a mechanism that he suggests would allow very weak magnetic fields, at the cyclotron resonance frequency for Ca2+ ions in the earth's field, to induce biological effects. IExpand

Detection of weak electric fields by sharks, rays, and skates.
The elasmobranchs-sharks, rays, and skates-can detect very weak electric fields in their aqueous environment through a complex sensory system, the ampullae of Lorenzini. The ampullae are conductingExpand

Stochastic resonance at the single-cell level
Does the electricity with which we power our world pose significant health hazards from the resulting electromagnetic fields? Several authors, have speculated that ‘stochastic resonance’ — aExpand
