A group of specialists decided to break down the DNA code of cephalopods to see what comes out of it. One of the key reasons for this was their ability to modify their neuronal characteristics, which have an influence on memory and learning capacity, quickly.
The skin, suckers, and nervous system are all sophisticated organic structures in several cephalopod-specific genes.
The brain networks are made up of half a billion neurons, the majority of which are distributed out from the skull without the requirement for a spinal cord, like in vertebrates.
One of the most remarkable elements of these animals’ neural systems is that even if one of their limbs is severed, they can still do cognitive activities. This is an excellent example of cutting-edge biological engineering.
This is due to six protein genes known as reflectins, which control how light bounces off the octopus’ skin.
Octopuses are unquestionably one of science’s greatest mysteries. Many specialists believe they are extraterrestrials, or at least have alien genetic baggage, due to their immense complexity.
