Elastic springs help tiny animals stay fast and strong. New work is finding what size critters must be to benefit from the springs.
Researchers are building a case that long before the nervous system works, the brain sends crucial bioelectric signals to guide the growth of embryonic tissues.
With electrical signals, simple cells organize themselves into complex societies and negotiate with other colonies.
The new experiments suggest that simple models can explain the behavior of thousands of interacting organisms.
