Brain Activity Of A Moving Animal Was Recorded In 3D

This worm was chosen because he is not the sharpest tool in the shed, having a more simple brain in comparison to other specimens. At Princeton University, a massive breakthrough in the field of science was achieved earlier this week, as the brain activity of a moving animal was recorded in 3D for the first time. Although the animal in question, the Caenorhabditis Elegans nematode, a 1 millimeter-long worm, has a rather simple brain, comprised of only 302 neurons, it still paves the way for future breakthroughs where the technique could be applied to complex animals and even humans. Up to this point, scientists were able to document only specific parts of the brain in relation to a moving body part, not the entire brain. What is even more beneficial…
