Distant intercellular electromagnetic interaction between two tissue cultures


Experimental data on distant intercellular electromagnetic interaction between two tissue cultures when one of them is exposed to factors of biological (viruses) or chemical (mercuric chloride) nature are presented; the characteristic response of the “intact” culture is in the form of a “mirror” cytopathic effect.
