Bioelectricity in Humans

How Studying Bioelectricity in Humans could help fight critical diseases?

Did you know that the human body also has electricity flowing inside? Yes, It’s true. Bioelectricity, which refers to the electrical flow of currents in the human body, is used by our cells to communicate with each other. This is how our nervous system works. Through bioelectric signals, the nervous system sends signals throughout the body and the brain which helps us perform functions like move, think, act, feel, read, write, talk, walk, and several other related functions. Moreover, it is because of this electricity that we feel pain. Bioelectric signals help the nerves to relay information and mediate body functions by transmitting electrical impulses.

The Science of Bioelectricity

Bioelectricity plays a significant role in various diseases and physiological conditions. It is also extremely beneficial in identifying the neural structure of the brain, the activity of the heart, and all other organs, including every function of the body. It is through these bioelectric signals that various diseases are detected by doctors. For instance, an ECG test for the heart or an MRI/CT for the brain records these signals that result in the diagnosis of various health conditions and the functioning of the organs.

Study of Bioelectric Signals

Furthermore, researchers are starting to feel that recording and altering the bioelectric fields of cells and tissues could help fight various critical diseases including cancer, heart disease, and several others. To confirm this theory, researchers have engineered and created a molecular device that can record and manipulate its surrounding bioelectric field. This could help the researchers to understand the various biological, neurological, and physiological systems in the body and their response to drugs and other environmental factors.

Also, this device can help study the implications and effects on the network of brain cells and heart cells in case of an alteration of the nearby electric field. Along with this, the study of bioelectric signals could also provide a breakthrough in identifying the response and reaction of the neurons in the brain to several psychological diseases. Research also suggests that altering these bioelectric signals in the brain cells could repair genetic defects and induce the development of healthy brain tissue. Studying the bioelectric signals throughout the body and their response to various factors could help researchers in identifying and developing more effective and better drugs and treatments.
