Re: Electromagnetic fields generated by the human body

... near it, it would stop hanging and complete the boot procedure and then work. I won't go into the details of why this was happening - it was a circuit design error, but the reason putting the hand near the board caused it to work was that the hand was generating a weak AC electromagnetic field ...

Nerve Cell Represented By Electrical Circuit

Hey guys, I'm new here! Just looking at the Fitzhugh-Nagumo model of the nerve cell as a electrical circuit and wondered if you knew what all the circuit elements represent? Particularly the diode. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks

Re:

... runaway event or a chemical reaction. the nerves produce small currents but even though small those currents generate some heat and a short-circuit of the nervous system is thought of as another possible cause for the source of heat .

Reasons why spontaneous human combustion is impossible?

... than cause fire anyway. Or am I missing something here, can you really ignite things with a hot water radiator? I am not aware of any neural short-circuit mechanism that could cause fire, because a) the energies in the nervous system are so small that you probably could not ignite even gasoline ...

Reasons why spontaneous human combustion is impossible?

I'd like to know if some metabolic runaway or nervous system short-circuit could lead up to SHC.
