Magnetoreception article in Aktuel Naturvidenskab

Today we had an article about magnetoreception published in the danish popular science magazine Aktuel Naturvidenskab, and we even made it to the front cover!

The article is a brief review of magnetoreception aimed mainly for high school students, and it explains some of the experimental evidence for magnetoreception in migratory song birds as well as the mechanism behind the radical pair hypothesis. In addition, the use of supercomputers in biophysical research is briefly discussed, as such computational methods are crucial for our research and yet completely unknown to high school students.

The article "Et radikalt kompas viser fuglene vej" can be found at the website of Aktuel Naturvidenskab (danish only).
