" We have analyzed and discussed three phenomena of electrical communication in biosystems, including direction-changing movement of paramecia, prey behavior of flytraps, and simultaneous discharge of electric ells. These discussions lead to a conclusion that in biosystems the electrical signals are mainly soliton-like electromagnetic pulses, which are generated by transient transmembrane ion currents through protein ion-channels. These electromagnetic signals mainly propagate along the softmaterial waveguide which is basically composed of dielectric membrane, sandwiched in two ionic liquid layers at both sides. In myelinated axons, the dielectric layer is as thick as several microns as it consists of tens of lipid bilayers. This transmission model implies that a wireless communication mechanism has been naturally developed in biosystem."
