This comment is directly related to previously published work [M. N. Shneider and M. Pekker, J. Appl. Phys. , 104701 (2013)], in which we outlined the effect of a non-thermal mechanism of microwave radiation on the activity of neural tissue. In this note, we provide more realistic estimates of the longitudinal sound velocity in the lipid membranes and the corresponding estimates of the microwaveresonance frequencies.
