Thread: Soy Sauce makes neurons fire

    Soy Sauce makes neurons fire

    - Some might find this a tad silly - but I'm curios, does soy sauce make human neurons fire too?
    Remember - this squid is dead..

    ...you must think of the soy sauce as jolting the squid's tentacles with very small amounts of electricity. The energy lies within ions contained in the sauce's high sodium content. These ions are used in cells to create voltage differences. Because the squid is served fresh, the cells inside are still active and when the sodium is applied, the signals across the nerve cell membranes are temporarily reactivated causing the squid to "dance."

    I'm in Japan and I've had gallons of soy sauce since I got paralyzed.
    Soy sauce, soy paste, tofu, straight soy beans, dried soy beans and nothing good to report
