Basingstoke IVC Science Cafe would like to invite you to the following talk organised by the Science Discovery Group based in Emsworth near Havant.
Please go to the Science Discovery Group web site for details of how to book onto this talk:
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.
