I;ve practiced teaching myself, even before I watched this, to sense north in my head. I wonder what my brain would look like in this?

Be interesting to see if brain response to magnetic fields included potentiation of other sensory systems...ie heightened vestibular, visual, kinesthetic sensitivities

In the documentary "lo and behold" they talk about people that had to live in a Faraday cage. This has something to do with those people?

I use to have a piece of steel in my left hand...I magnetized it! Being a machinist it was very handy in determining non-ferrous and ferrous metals apart :D Sadly I lost my gift a year ago after having it for 7years :'(

That's interesting. I have always had a "sense" where the north is, I even used a few times to navigate with a map and I always got where I wanted to go without problems and sometimes my friends told to close my eyes and they would spin me around and then asked where the north is and I got it right every time

I knew that humans have magnetic senses, and we can use it consciously. My grandfather was a diver, he was also born blind. It's always confusing to hear that and know that he regularly dived about every other week. I guess he just liked to swim.

If it's roughly the strength of earth's magnetic field, doesn't that mean this machine would interrupt every compass in the world

In magnetic fields there is both strength and range aspects to them. A magnet is way stronger than the earth's magnetic field, but only for a short distance.

@Veritasium Who are these "people that are more sensitive to electromagnetism"? Did you find out that they were sensitive with the experiment or before? If before, how did you/they know?

I would guess that the North/South/East/West predominance in language has more to do with the latitude rather than magnetic capabilities of humans. Because there isn't a better universal reference point in a primitive age than the sun (weather abiding).

Yes, this would be an interesting research too. Do people get more or less sensitive during solar storms? Would be interesting to find out. There's so much we don't know about electromagnetism.

Okay. This is so amazing. My mom & husband (my husband especially) know their directions inherently. I’ve always thought it was so weird & unexplainable to me. We just had a conversation the other day about how amazing of a phenomenon it was & I just can’t believe it. We actually did an experiment where I had my husband close his eyes in a pitch dark bathroom, spin around a few times & then tell me what direction was which & he was correct. Anytime we go out of town, we can be in a TOTALLY foreign place in the middle of nowhere downtown & he’ll know exactly what direction is which. Anyway... you get the point. It’s just seriously unbelievable to me. I can’t even comprehend how incredible it is.

The human eye actually had the ability to detect magnetic fields but it's too much stimuli for our brains to handle so they just delete it

It's not racist, you were primed by the japanese accent of the other scientist Shin Shimojo as he introduced himself first. It's useless to guilt yourself. "Racism" is just the brain predicting.

I've only had marginal success knowing north without visual help and memory. That said, when electronic devices, particularly televisions, are on in another room, even if they're muted and I can't see the flickers, I can 'feel' it being on and which direction it is in relation to me. I could do that since I was a kid. Don't know if it's related.

They should try this experiment with some kind of tribesmen or someone who is close to nature, . these types of people will be more in tune with other senses that we civilized people lose or have become numb too. U can experience this just by being barefoot outside every day for a few hours ,u will notice a change in subtle ways but it will be noticeable.

I wonder if people who are more directionally inclined have bigger reaction to magnetic fields than those who don’t. This is really interesting!!!

Standard electrodes are very sensitive to electromagnetic signals in the environment, hence the Faraday cage to shield them out. I am wondering if the EEG signals are the artifact of the environmental electromagnetic fluctuation. The interpersonal differences between the sensitivity could well be correlated with the environmental fluctuations. As a control, the signals from the electrodes should be measured without attaching them to a human.

My father, older sister, and I are very sensitive to this, but there's also a solar aspect for us. My sister is currently living just south of the equator and she says it messes with her a lot, because the sun's movements don't align with her internal compass. But, we both have a cardinally linked memory thing where we orient ourselves to the same compass point as the memory when trying to recall information.
