Chemotaxis: Cider vinegar rules
Ronald L Calabrese
Experiments in wind tunnels have shed light on the rules that govern how flies respond when they detect odors.
Learning: How the cerebellum learns to build a sequence
Rabbits can learn the biological analogue of a simple recursive function by relying only on the neurons of the cerebellum.
