Pineal gland "magnetosensitivity" to static magnetic fields is a consequence of induced electric currents (eddy currents).

During the past decade, a number of reports indicated that the mammalian pineal gland is magnetosensitive in terms of spatial orientation. This indication is based on observations that artificial alterations of the direction of the earth's magnetic field (MF) markedly decreased the gland's capability to synthesize melatonin. These findings, however, seem… CONTINUE READING
