Submission + - Controversial New Idea: Nerves Transmit Sound, Not

worldsound73 writes: Interesting article about how some researchers are attempting to show that nerves transmit sound as opposed to electricity. A quote from the article, "The physical laws of thermodynamics tell us that electrical impulses must produce heat as they travel along the nerve, but experiments find that no such heat is produced." The article continues to show why this view is controversial and that this research has a long road ahead to gain support. ves_work.html

The less time planning, the more time programming.
