This TED talk features neuroscientist Greg Gage as he dissects a cockroach on stage and plays various sounds through its dissected leg to make it move to the beat. He demonstrates how electrical impulses are sent and received by the brain. A very interesting talk with an especially eye opening ending.
If you just can’t get enough of these types of shenanigans, check out this video of Cypress Hill’s “Insane in the Brain” being played through a squid’s fin. Squids can alter the pigment of their skin. Their cells (chromatophores) literally dance and change color in response to electrical stimulation.
How long before walls of chromatophores become the new fad in raves?
