Excitation of visual sensory experiences by electromagnetic fields of lightning

Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we will consider the possible interactions, either direct or indirect, of the lightning-generated electromagnetic fields with the brain or the visual system of humans to induce visual sensations. Some of these visual sensations are known as phosphenes in the medical literature. Since some of these visual sensations could be misinterpreted as ball lightning, this subject is of interest for lightning researchers due to the still unsolved problem of the origin of ball lightning.
