For high frequency alternating currents the body is known to act as an efficient antenna, collecting and transferring energy across a wide range of frequencies. Vivent researches whether this ability to collect and transmit external electrical signals is also used for internal sources.
Our work with plants, that do not have nerves, shows that they transmit electrical signals between the roots and shoots to initiate defence against pests and diseases and to regulate processes like growth and reproduction.
Vivent is a world leader in recording and processing these electrical signals to extract information being communicated between different parts of plants. We are investigating whether similar signals are present in the human body.
