Neuroscientists decode the brain activity of the worm

15 octubre 2015

New findings on the brain activity of the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans have been released by researchers. The scientists were able to show that brain cells (neurons), organized in a brain-wide network, albeit exerting different functions, coordinate with each other in a collective manner. They could also directly link these coordinated activities in the worm’s brain to the processes that generate behavior.
