Piezoelectric effects in biological tissues

Józef Joachim Telega, Ryszard Wojnar
The aim of this paper is to analyze different contributions and differents points of view concerning the meaning of the piezoelectric effect in the bone. It is now obvious that this effect is overhelming in dry bone. In wet bone more important are streaming potentials.
