[Recording electrical activity from the brain of behaving octopus](https://www.cell.com/current-biology/fulltext/S0960-9822(23)00145-8?_returnURL=https%3A%2F%2Flinkinghub.elsevier.com%2Fretrieve%2Fpii%2FS0960982223001458%3Fshowall%3Dtrue#%20) Octopuses are intelligent animals that have eight flexible arms and no skeleton. They have a complex central nervous system that coordinates their sensory and motor activities. The octopus brain contains many neurons organized into different parts, but their functions are not fully understood. To better understand the link between octopus brain activity and behavior, scientists have developed a technique for implanting electrodes into the vertical lobe system of the octopus brain and inserting a portable data logger into the animal. This allows for up to 12 hours of brain activity recording while the octopus behaves normally. The recorded brain activity shows several distinct patterns, some of which have never been reported before. This study is an important step towards understanding how the octopus brain controls behavior. @mr27.near, @littlelion.near, are you octopi?
