Spread spectrum would be an unlikely method.  First, it is wrong to 
interpret spread sprectrum as a method of getting information transmitted
with a very low signal power level.  The power at any one frequency
is low, but the overall power is about the same as other transmission
modes.  Second, ss requires a common, *extremely* accurate, synchronizing
signal for encoding and decoding.  Third, ss requires a carefully-sequenced,
tightly-timed frequency stepping (or synthesis) mechanism.  The central nervous
system is notably sloppy in the time domain.

I still have not seen any evidence for ruling out infrared signaling.
Although the skull is opaque to IR, the input and output could be
through the peripheral nervous system.  

I still have not seen any evidence for ruling out modulated gravitational
radiation.  Maybe a physics expert out there can help.  

The arguments for ruling out electric fields is just plain wrong.
The membrane thickness does not determine the size of the electric
field.  (Although it does contribute the to calculation.)  Single
neurons can be detected a millimeter or more from the membrane that
is only 100s of angstroms in thickness.  Groups of neurons can
be detected on the surface of the body with amplifiers no more
sophisticated than a good stereo amplifier (EEGs).  Maybe there is
telepathy when two people touch.  (Or maybe it just seems that way!)

: 	Humans, also, communicate with sound as well as sight but this 
: does not preclude telepathic communication.
