Transcript of Bioelectricity
Hunter McCullough "Bioelectricity, electric potentials and currents produced by or occurring within living organisms. Bioelectric potentials are generated by a variety of biological processes and generally range in strength from one to a few hundred millivolts. In the electric eel, however, currents of one ampere at 600 to 1,000 volts are generated."

Animal Nervous systems Video: Bioelectric shields A bioelectric shield is a garment with the purpose of diverting electromagnetic radiation from computers, cell phones, and other electrical devices. Vocabulary Epigenetics- Study of changes in cellular phenotype and gene expression.
Electromagnetic Radiation- the radiation found in electrical devices.
Phenotype- Appearance of a cell.
Gene Expression- Conversion of encoded information into mRNA then into protein.
RNA- Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) is a synthesizer of protein. The type mentioned above (mRNA) is known as messenger RNA and carries gentic code from DNA for protein synthesis.
