Abstract

Lang (1977b) dealt specifically with the question posed in this chapter in a comprehensive study. Orientation by electric and magnetic fields is an ability that has been demonstrated in many animal species, from protozoans, worms and insects to higher animals such as birds and small mammals. This includes orientation for homing purposes over great distances, as well as simple avoidance behavior or flight responses to escape from disturbing geophysical environmental influences. Observations that man is also capable of consciously perceiving such fields, which could not be substantiated initially according to scientific criteria, have recently proved to be statistically valid (Gossel, 1977).
