Fungal Neuroscience
Prof Andrew Adamatzky Unconventional Computing Centre, Bristol
Mon. 17th May 2021 7:30pm by Zoom

Fungi are creatures with remarkable protocognition abilities. They control `thinking’ of trees; open minds of humans and help us to live in the world and see the invisible. Recently we found that the electrical activity of fungi is similar to neurons. Fungi communicate with spikes of electrical potential. They respond to stimulation by changing their electrical properties. I will share an overview of our discoveries on sensing and computing with fungi.
