I am thinking if electromagnetic radiation can induce an electrical current in the neuron similar to the way antenna works. Since the antenna receive radio wave, which is a type of electromagnetic radiation to generate electricity. Can the neuron also receive electromagnetic radiation and induce an electrical current in a similar way. This explains electromagnetic radiation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_radiation This is an animation on the nerve impulse: http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sit...0/chapter14/animation__the_nerve_impulse.html How electromagnetic radiation generates electricity: http://syzygyastro.hubpages.com/hub/How-the-Physics-of-Electromagnetism-can-Generate-Electricity My questions is what type of electromagnetic radiation would be projected onto the neuron to induce a current flow and how do you receive this signal back containing the information about the electrical current in the neuron. Like how do you examine the current flow within a person's head. Lastly, how do you block this type of electromagnetic radiation?
