Explore the Complexity of Octopus Brains

Pop some corn, get cozy, and watch this amazing and informative video from BoingBoingVideo.

Octopus Video Description

Everybody loves cephalopods—that class of animals containing octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish. But why? What makes these non-fluffy, non-mammals so appealing?

Last August, I attempted to answer that question in a presentation for a University of New Mexico IGERT symposium ( "Those Fabulous Octopus Brains" is a speech linking cephalopod neurobiology to cephalopod behavior, and asking what it really means to call a species "intelligent". It'll get you caught up on what we do, and don't, know about cephalopod smarts—and what studying these amazing creatures means for the future of human technology, and our understanding of the human brain.

Don't have time to watch the entire thing? Never fear. The intrepid editors at BoingBoing Video have put together a highlights reel that will enlighten you in a 1/3 of the time.

Random Octopus: Banner for the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium

I went to see the new Cirque du Soleil show, OvO and was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by an octopus as I walked down the Santa Monica Pier.

The banner is to promote the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium which houses a Bimac Octopus, an inhabitant of the Santa Monica Bay. The Aquarium is helping us Angelenos "get to know our neighbors" with their exhibit, Meet the Locals, which showcases creatures native to the Santa Monica Bay.

The Santa Monica Pier Aquairum is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday, and admission is a suggested donation of $5.
