    Research has found some human brains can pick up on rotations of geomagnetic-strength fields as evidenced by drops in alpha wave power following stimulus. For more, see ve42.co/magneto

Is the brain picking up these magnetic changes, or is it something else that tells the brain how to react? Kind of like how the EEG would change if somebody pinched your arm.

Both my sister and I grew up scouring mountains and sailing every summer. However, while I have good orientation, she doesn't (but she has other strengths). I'm wondering how we'd both test out.

I wonder what would happen if we were to suddendly experience a total absence of all magnetic fields. Would we maybe feel it without knowing what it is we are feeling? E.g. get dizzy or something like that?

I'm reminded of the time travel boxes from the movie "Primer". So which timeline are you from, Derek? :P Also, considering the brain is a massive electrical network that is very sensitive to changes in it's own electrical field (see: the spreading wave of cortical depolarisation that heralds a migraine headache, for example) it makes some kinda sense that it would react to changes in the surrounding magnetic field as well, since electricity and magnetism are both part of the electromagnetic force. They've also shown that transcranial magnetic stimulation can make people feel odd although the mechanism is different and a lot more focused than that seen here. I guess the question is HOW sensitive is the brain to these changes, and if there's any kind of potential usability there. Glad they're looking into it though.

Yes human can sens magnetic field. It requires a little practice to deferential from other experiences and they do not need any extra equipment. For start use very strong neodymium magnet and move your finger around it with closed eyes.

In the olden days, people spent a lot of time outside, and the sun was frequently visible. It is possible to tell where north, south, east, and west are based on the location of the Sun. Humans are also capable of remembering information. When the Sun was not visible they were able to remember where North was located based on the last time the Sun was visible.

What if the changed magnetic field just messes with our cells and gives the impression that we sense magnetic fields.. it might for example just be receptors in our eyes/ears sending false signals because of the disturbance.

What were the electrodes used to capture the eeg made of? Magnetic material? What about the camera? Couldn't that interfere with the experiment? Also, mri machines create strong magnetic fields, there are reports of people having a sense that they feel different during the scan. If that's the case, one's brain pattern would not be that valid of a study when using fMRI

Of course we do, we are part of whole Universe, just many human brains are being programmed by other who has intention to conquer through mind setting and energy and made them forgot their own ability which they call sixth and seventh sense. sensing magnetic field is one of my "peculiar" abilities since I was born.

"Our brains have the ability to sense the magnetic field change, but it's implicit and subliminal, in the non-conscious part of the brain." I can already see this being tied to the marketing of meditation, yoga, health and wellness industries, and spiritual attunement of the earth.

And here in India, we have a "superstition" from our ancestors who perhaps understood this better than us. So the superstition says that one cannot sleep with the head in the North direction. It has to be in the south. Apparently it messes with the body's magnetic field orientation with that of the earth's magnetic field. Not exactly sure how it affects but they did and that's why they advised it. p.s. And just like every other superstition in India, there's a whole story about a elephant's head being cut off as a sage commanded that they get the head of any animal that's sleeping with it's head in the NORTH and thus they created the fear that bad things will happen to people who do it too.

evolution - life adapted to use so called "visual" spectrum of EM. But just as well it could be using other available input stimuli. We know touch (which is EM on atomic level?), sound (again, waves of the medium), smell etc. But it could be quantum effects (or sth) that we don't even necessarily know yet. Nature had eons to learn to utilize any property of physical world. We only started research very few thousands years ago (at most stretch).

I wonder if meditation or learning how to channel could raise magnetic field sensitivity. When brain frequencies change, people can experience hightened sensitivity to noises, light, ringing in the ears, changes in heart rate etc. The community of channelers calls those "ascention symptoms". Maybe sensitivity to magnetic fields can be one of them so testing channelers sensitivity to magnetic fields could be an interesting route.

Well if modern technology is the reason we no longer use this magnetic field sensing ability. Then why did mariners in the past need a compass, and a way to read the stars to navigate? Especially when storms pushed ships off course and it became a life and death situation. Peoples got lost at sea when no one could see the stars due to cloudy sky's. Why no one on a sailing ship in days of old, was used as a human compass through history. So I sense one thing for sure, Bull $hit.
