Insane in the Chromatophores
During experiments on the axons of the Woods Hole squid (loligo pealei), we tested our cockroach leg stimulus protocol (an iPod) on the squid's chromatophores. The results were both interesting and beautiful.
More details can be found here: http://news.backyardbrains.com/2012/08/insane-in-the-chromatophores/ and an explanation of how it works can be found on our TED talk: http://on.ted.com/Gage
For our friends in Germany, we uploaded to Vimeo as well https://vimeo.com/48183535
Paloma T. Gonzalez-Bellido of Roger Hanlon's Lab in the Marine Resource Center of the Marine Biological Labs helped us with the preparation.
