	I've already pretty much ruled out any mode other than radio.
These other means that you mention seem impractical for various reasons.
Capacitive and inductive coupling would be extremely limited in range
for the energy available in the brain. There is a potential across the
neural membrane and, in my opinion, the thickness of the membrane would
be the order of magnitude for the influence of such effects. The influence
of the gravitational force of sub-cellular structures would be infinitesimal.
Infrared energy of any reasonable power would simply not penetrate the 
skull. There is also the problem of providing a theoretical model for
such mechanisms as applied to mental communication.

	On the other hand, mental communication by means of biologically
derived radio waves could be quite readily accounted for by means already
well-known and understood. Molecules can emit and be excited by radio waves.

	As far as snakes being telepathic, in my opinion they are not; 
precisely because of the proposed mode of communication. Fish, amphibians, 
and reptiles, being marine, aquatic or closely related to marine and aquatic
animals could not have evolved this capacity. Water is a highly absorbtive
medium for radio-frequency EM waves. The distances to which this type of 
communication would be limited under water would make it of dubious value.
Indeed, the cerebral cortex of these animals is visibly different from
that of mammals and birds which I believe to possess a telepathic faculty.
Yes, whales and dolphins do live in the sea but, they spend much time at
the surface where neural radio communication could occur.
