Experiment proves that humans can actually sense Earth’s magnetic field

Biologists after intense study have stated that animals come with a knack for magnetic sense. These talent or embedded feature helps the creatures such as turtles, bees, and even birds to navigate through different parts of the world. Now, scientists are trying to determine if the human beings belong to this particular list for magnetically sensitive species. For decades, this trait has been under scrutiny with endless stream of controversy.

These mixed results come from people given that all the past studies actually relied over the behavioural decisions opted by the participants. If humans do possess magnetic sense, the daily experience tends to suggest that this feature is deeply subconscious and weak.

These faint impressions can plainly be missed or misinterpreted when opting to make good decisions. This is why the research group which included a cognitive neuroscientist, geophysical biologist, and neuroengineer opted for another approach. The thing that these scientists deduced is a landmark evidence for first ever concrete neuro-scientific evidence of humans possessing geomagnetic sense.

Our Earth is covered all around by magnetic field that is generated due to movement of planet’s liquid-form core. This is why magnetic compass tends to point to the north. Scientists have considered the fact that humans tend to be sensitive magnetically but it can vary from one individual to another.
