Nico and Marilyn Van Wingen Professor of Geobiology
Kirschvink has originated several such ideas aimed at increasing our understanding of how biological evolution has influenced, and has been influenced by, major events on the surface of the Earth. His lab discovered that human brains can detect Earth-strength magnetic fields. A pattern of brain waves shows that we are subconsciously processing geomagnetic stimuli.
