A semiconductor material has an electrical conductivity value falling between that of a conductor, such as copper, and an insulator, such as glass. Their resistance decreases as their temperature increases, which is behavior opposite to that of a metal.

The Four Founders of Electromagnetic Theory

Electricity and magnetism are two sides of the same force. Electric currents induce magnetic fields. Shifting magnetic fields induce electric currents. This facts that nowadays we take so very much for granted were mainly established by 4 great minds that hugely developed the world of Physics.

Electric Proteins at the Doors of the Cell

Scientists from USA and Hungary have measured electric conductance through an isolated protein that normally is located at the outer membrane of the cell.
Tensegrity

Semiconduction and Tensegrity

A new physiology of bioenergy requires adopting these two concepts. Tensegrity as the molecular scaffolding which permits semiconduction to happen, this latter as an electronic information system, which is very different from normal neural communication.
Neuromelanin

Neuromelanin rising

At one of the far corners of tyrosine's methabolic pathway lays neuromelanin, a molecule that seems to have detoxifying properties.
