Scientists at Yale University have discovered a surprising new discovery in the vertebrate nervous systems.
They found that fish can not only differentiate between different types of animals, but they also display a unique set of traits.
The findings appear in the journal Current Biology.
“I would like to thank my colleague Dr. Daniel Fessler, and my colleagues Dr. Michael Gansler, Dr. Robert K. Gansl and Dr. Jeffrey A. Johnson for the assistance they provided in developing this paper,” said Dr. Christopher L. Shirk, director of the Center for Integrative Genomics at Yale.
Dr. Shirok was not involved in the study.
But he said it was a big step forward.
“This is a very exciting result because it shows how our understanding of how fish brains are connected to their nervous systems is not limited to the fish.
They can also differentiate between many other animals,” he said.”
It means that there are other species out there, that are just very different in the way that they organize their nervous system,” he continued.”
And so it’s possible that other species can have a very different nervous system from the fish, but it’s a very complex system that we’ve never been able to see before.”
In a previous study, Drs.
Krieg and Johnson found that the fish’s nervous system was not the same as the nervous system of vertebrates, including humans.
In their latest study, the Yale researchers found that there is a wide range of nervous system diversity in the fish brain.
It is also possible that some fish have more nervous systems than others, they said.
In a separate study, researchers at Yale discovered that fish are able to detect emotions.
This was an important discovery because fish have a sense of emotional intelligence.
“Emotions are part of the same brain system as pain and pleasure and all the other senses that we use in our lives,” Dr. Shrik said.
But the Yale scientists found that emotional responses in fish are not as distinct as we have previously thought.
They discovered that the fishes nervous system detects and processes the same kinds of information that humans use in their daily lives, such as the ability to identify the smell of a food item.
The fish’s neural processing of emotion is not different than that of the brain of vertebrate animals, Dr Shrik added.
“So we are seeing a difference in the neural processing and the way in which emotions are processed in this fish,” he explained.
