How Many Genes Does It Take to Learn? Lessons from Sea Slugs

Scientists analyzing the genomics of a marine snail have gotten an unprecedented look at brain mechanisms, discovering that the neural processes in even a simple sea// creature are far from sluggish. At any given time within just a single brain cell of sea slug known as Aplysia, more than 10,0...
