The octopus has fascinated investigators since Aristotle (and sparks innovation for Washington Black). New scientific approaches have shed light upon the unique neural architecture that supports the outstanding abilities of this cognitively complex, yet evolutionarily distant form of intelligence. Join Dr. David Gire, whose lab studies octopus species native to the Pacific Northwest, on an exploration of the neuroscience behind how octopuses think and behave.
