Nerves don't use electricity, but sound
Posted 30 October 2011 - 04:03 PM
As you know nerves transmit impulses through electricity, but this is apparently wrong; nerves transmit sound, according to a team of Danish scientists. They explain that electrical impulses must produce heat (physical laws of thermodynamics), but there's no such heat when they travel along the nerve. Therefore, in order to give a much more likely explanation Heimburg (an expert in biophysics) and Jackson (an expert in theoretical physics) theorize that nerves transmit impulses through sound propagation.
