Parsing Science - The minds of single-celled organisms

posted on 19.03.2020 by Doug Leigh, Ryan Watkins, Jeremy Gunawardena
Can even a single-celled organism truly learn? In Episode 70, Jeremy Gunawardena with the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School talks with us about his replication of an experiment originally conducted over a century ago, which suggested that at least one single-cell organism - the trumpet-shaped Stentor roeseli - is able to carry out surprisingly complex decision-making behaviors. His article, "A complex hierarchy of avoidance behaviors in a single-cell eukaryote," [free PDF] was co-authored with Joseph Dexter & Sudhakaran Prabakaran, and published on December 16, 2019 in the journal Current Biology.
