According to a new study, the neural and cognitive complexity of the octopus could originate from a molecular analogy with the human brain.
For the first time, scientists have documented Octopuses throwing debris at each other.
A valiant effort to map the optic lobe of the octopus brain, cell by cell, has revealed a visual system with remarkable similarities and differences to our own.
Octopuses' mastery of camouflage has mystified researchers since the beginning of science itself. Octopuses can shift hues because they have chromatophores — tiny, color-changing organs that are dotted throughout an octopus's skin.
