Thanks for watching. Seems like you're the only one who does.
Must see video.
Everybody loves cephalopods—that class of animals containing octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish. But why? What makes these non-fluffy, non-mammals so appealing?
Last August, I attempted to answer that question in a presentation for a University of New Mexico IGERT symposium (http://www.chtm.unm.edu/incbnigert/2010Symposium.html). "Those Fabulous Octopus Brains" is a speech linking cephalopod neurobiology to cephalopod behavior, and asking what it really means to call a species "intelligent". It'll get you caught up on what we do, and don't, know about cephalopod smarts—and what studying these amazing creatures means for the future of human technology, and our understanding of the human brain.
This is a serious must see vid indeed!
Amazing! You gotta watch this. This is a kind of jellyfish, the Deepstaria sp. Looks so incredibly alien. Life on earth never ceases to amaze me.
Do you know if this is from James Cameron sea-bottom exploration?
Looks like sheets of silk swaying, amazing.
I don't know.
I spent only two weeks of my life underwater, in the Aguilhas Current, off the coast of South Africa, diving. Were two of the most beautiful weeks of my life, notwithstanding the ear pain :)
I was getting a sense of sitting in a dentist's seat with a dental dam in front of my face! Hard for them to see what they're doing!
