Simple Theoretical Models for Magnetic Interactions with Biological Units

  • Peter W. Neurath


We can calculate what happens to physical entities in magnetic fields. If these entities can serve as appropriate models for biological units such as blood cells or neurons, definite predictions become possible and meaningful experiments can be designed.
