Welcome to The Bioelectric Revolution

In the past half century, the brain has dominated the study of electricity in the body.

It turns out that all cells, not just neurons, send and receive electrical signals – a phenomenon known as bioelectricity.

Long before there were brains, evolution figured out that electrical networks are exceptional for computation. Bioelectricity is the primitive intelligence of the body – a computational medium by which groups of cells make decisions about what to build.

For a quick primer on bioelectricity, start here.

Bioelectric view of health

Most of the health problems we face can be traced back to bioelectricity going awry – birth defects, traumatic injury, degenerative disease, cancer, aging, and so on.

If we knew how to tell cells what to build, all of these problems would go away.

This represents a new paradigm of health, directing the collective intelligence of cells towards repairing damaged tissues or organs.

Our understanding of bioelectricity is accelerating as novel tools are being developed to decipher and reprogram the information encoded in bioelectric networks.

The bioelectric revolution is just beginning.

About this newsletter

My goal is to provide accessible coverage on the emerging field of bioelectricity and all of its applications as it relates to our health.

You can expect:

  • digestible summaries of exciting new research in the field

  • perspectives on potential therapeutic applications

  • interviews with scientists and innovators at the frontier

I hope that you’ll join me in exploring what could be the frontier of health!
