    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.

    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.
