New Scientist does it again

New Scientist has an article explaining the mechanism for Poltergeist phenomena.
Brovetto and Maxia hypothesise that the changes in the brain that occur at puberty involve fluctuations in electron activity that, in rare cases, can create disturbances up to a few metres around the outside of the brain.
At last, the skeptics have finally found a naturalistic explanation for all those cases of floating furniture! What will the field of neuroquantology come up with next?

(to remove all doubt, this was an April fools joke of course)
