Educated Slugs (Part 1 of 2)

 

How is our brain and a garden slug’s brain similar? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

 

So complex is the human brain that even some of today’s most visionary scientists have commented that they doubt science will ever fully understand how the brain works. To better understand the brain, scientists have been studying the brains of so-called simple creatures like the garden slug.

 

But how similar is the brain of a garden slug to the human brain? Researchers have been amazed at the unexpected similarities and abilities shared by both the garden slug and man. Researchers have found that garden slugs can be trained, using unpleasant flavorings, to avoid potatoes, their favorite food. Eventually slugs will avoid potatoes that have not been made to taste bad. Slugs, and even garden snails, can learn a sequence of events.

 

But there’s more … as we’ll discover on our next program.

 

For http://www.CreationMomentsMinute.com, I’m Darren Marlar.
