I'm a genetics student at the University of Glasgow. I like to think I'm funny, and like to laugh, so here I am

to a certain extent, yes. They have amazing visual acuity.

But, there was a study in which different handlers would either always feed, or always antagonize specific octopi. Not only did each octopus change their color and patterning in response to a recognized handler, but they would actively avoid the ones that antagonized them, and approach the ones that fed and played with them. That, and the handlers weren't required to wear the same thing every day, so it's assumed that they remember their faces and other such complex details.
They also have subtle patterning differences corresponding to individual trainers; so its clear that they recognize and behave according to the individual they're dealing with. They do the same thing with other members of their own species.

Could they act differently for different people due to their visual processing? They see people they recognise, so they act a certain way.

Well, that will be an awesome career path. Synthetic biology is pretty much always exciting.

Personally, I just want to end up teaching at an R1 institution, where I can teach a few classes, and have my own lab in which to do behavioral neuroscience. Encephalopods, how do they think?! seriously though. The giant octopus eats its dead mother as a first meal, has a 2-5 year lifespan, and is mostly solitary, yet those crafty motherfuckers seek out interaction with handlers, remember and behave different according to the individual, are capable of learning commands, and adapt surprisingly well to life in captivity,even with other octopi. And all this with an abysmal encephalization quotient, and a cortex largely devoted to visual processing.

I suppose.

It's just a bit of object oriented modeling, really. Once you understand the purpose of the link dependent growth algorithms used in the physics-y part to generate social networks, it's just a matter of setting boundaries based on viable spawning areas, planting a founder population, and adding in behavioral modifications for the population based on the real frogs.

I mean, what's the point of having all of this nifty knowledge if I can't use it for world domination cool science stuff?

User avatar #68 - coronus (04/25/2014) [-]
you would think that, and you would be correct.

but hey, at least I mostly finished turning my friend's physics thesis in complex network formation into a viable theoretical model for population distributions of threatened frog species, which is currently able to predict the impact of population sinks (areas attractive to a species for breeding/ settling that ultimately result in death), using real-world data for 10000 meter survey sites in NY state.

... so there's that. Might be a bit late with thesis, but if I can refine this model, I could also get another publication in before I take a year off / head to grad school.
