Unusual electron spin polarization tied to loss of consciousness via general anaesthesia in fruit flies (Drosophila)
From Paper: Figure 10 rev 2
Published: Aug 2014
  • General anesthesia, whose mechanism of action to eliminate consciousness is still not fully understood, is tied to electron spin signal in fruit flies
  • More broad connection between electron spin currents in cells and consciousness of nervous system is implied

Studies on the mechanism of general anesthesia
  • Sedation of PLD-null flies (i.e flies without phospholipase D) required almost twice the exposure as wild type (WT) flies
  • Inhaled anesthetics xenon, diethyl ether, halothane, and chloroform robustly activate TREK-1 to levels relevant to their clinical use
