New results emerging from graph theory prove that the way a population is organized can guarantee the eventual triumph of natural selection—or permanently thwart it.
Faced with a navigational challenge, neural networks spontaneously evolved units resembling the brain cells that help living animals track their location.
Bacterial biofilms and slime molds are more than crude patches of goo. Detailed time-lapse microscopy reveals how they sense and explore their surroundings, communicate with their neighbors and adaptively reshape themselves.
To create a good living replica of the human brain, your best hope may be to let “organoid” components assemble it for you.
