eat, eat is what i mean. fish think about. elephants think about. even the little squirrels think about it. you didn’t think i was implying something naughty in the bedroom, did you? what do i know, maybe eating in the bedroom is naughty.
Scientists have just observed a thought swimming through the brain of a live fish, and that thought concerned getting something good to eat.
Fish and other wild animals appear to think a lot about food: how to obtain it and what to consume.
The finding, published in the journal Current Biology, also reminds that thoughts can be isolated and monitored.
“Our work is the first to show brain activities in real time in an intact animal during that animal’s natural behavior,” co-author Koichi Kawakami of Japan’s National Institute of Genetics said in a press release. “We can make the invisible visible; that’s what is most important.”
