Développement du myxomycète "Physarum polycephalum", communément appelée blob

Among its many characteristics, the blob, although lacking a brain, is capable of learning from its experiences and transmitting the information learned to other individuals.
It thus proves that learning does not necessarily depend on the nervous system. Finally, it has a venous network that forms according to the same physical laws as the vascularisation of cancerous tumours, which could serve as a model.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
