Sensational regeneration of brain inhabitants of the deep sea discovered by an international team of scientists
Amazing ability to regenerate structures of the brain, scientists have found a fairly primitive, as previously thought, the deep sea dweller. Animal with exceptional properties and the organization of the nervous system called the sea ctenophore (Ctenophora).
Externally, they are very similar to jellyfish, and this similarity was the reason that the zoologists have long believed them to belong to the class of jellyfish. Only much later ctenophores identified in a special class with 6 units of its representatives. Comb jellies – it’s much more difficult to organized beings predators that hunting requires quite perfect the nervous system, which gives the ability to the good orientation and coordination.
These amazing marine life studied a group of scientists from the Universities of Florida and Washington, has joined forces with Russian biologists from the Institute of General Genetics, Russian Academy of Sciences. In subsequent phases are connected to the study of other scientists from Russia, USA, England and Holland.
It turned out that the comb jelly is a feature quite different than that of other members of the animal kingdom, the evolutionary path of development of the nervous system.
As the Leonid Moroz, leader of the group of scientists who conducted the study the University of Florida, Continue reading
