Default Researchers Play Bach For Crocodiles During MRI To Study Their Brains

Researchers Play Bach For Crocodiles During MRI To Study Their Brains


Researchers play Bach for young crocodiles during an MRI to see how the reptiles' brains react to complex stimuli. By conducting an MRI on crocodiles, researchers made a first-of-its-kind study that shed light into the brain process of crocodiles and how it might have evolved.

Nile Crocodile MRI

Researchers of a new study conducted a rather unusual test to understand how the brain of a young Nile crocodile might react to various visual and auditory stimuli. Apart from giving them the chance to compare these processes to birds' and mammals', the test also allowed researchers to get a glimpse of the bridge between dinosaurs and birds, as crocodiles are unique creatures that barely changed over millions of years.
