Carl Flink and David Odde recently published an article on bodystorming in the November Trends in Cell Biology Journal (volume 22, issue 12).

Abstract: “In everyday life, gravity and inertial forces often dominate our movements; in the cell, these forces pale in comparison to thermal forces. The violent, collisional world of the cell, where water moves faster than a jet airliner, can be difficult to imagine. To develop our intuitive understanding of cellular and molecular processes, we are exploring the concept of ‘bodystorming’, where human ‘movers’ act as molecules that diffuse, undergo reactions, and generate/absorb forces.”
