A comment to a physical transduction model in magnetoreception

Here we expolore feasibility arguments considering the perturbation of retinal switching in rhodopsin by a local electric field from a nearby electric dipole. This work relates to a physical transduction mechanism of magnetoreception in migratory birds.
