    Upper bound on the biological effects of 50/60 Hz magnetic fields mediated by radical pairs

    PJ Hore
    Any effects of environmental 50/60 Hz magnetic fields on human biology due to a radical pair mechanism should be no more dangerous than those incurred by travelling a few kilometres.

    Subcellular analysis of pigeon hair cells implicates vesicular trafficking in cuticulosome formation and maintenance

    Simon Nimpf et al.
    Cuticulosomes are organelles found in the hair cells of birds that are composed of ferritin nanoparticles, form rapidly after hatching by the fusion of vesicular structures, and may play an indirect role in magnetic sensation.

    Comment on "Magnetosensitive neurons mediate geomagnetic orientation in Caenorhabditis elegans"

    Lukas Landler et al.
    Employing blinded controlled methodology we find no evidence for a magnetic sense in the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Response to comment on "Magnetosensitive neurons mediate geomagnetic orientation in Caenorhabditis elegans"

    Andres Vidal-Gadea et al.
    A reanalysis of data from a challenge by Landler et al. (2018) and our Vidal-Gadea et al. (2015) study reinforce our original finding that C. elegans is a suitable model system to study magnetoreception.

    Physical limits to magnetogenetics

    Markus Meister
    Recent reports on the ability of biological molecules to sense magnetic fields are found to be inconsistent with basic physical principles.

    Magnetosensitive neurons mediate geomagnetic orientation in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Andrés Vidal-Gadea et al.
    With the aid of a pair of sensory neurons, the nematode worm C. elegans is able to detect the Earth's magnetic field and use it to navigate towards food sources.
