Extreme mechano-sensitive neurons of tactile-foraging ducks fit the bill for touch research

Recommended Posts

Mechanosensation is one of our fundamental physiological processes, on par with sight and smell, but how it works on a cellular level remains poorly understood, holding back development of effective treatments for mechanosensory disorders like chronic pain. Now, a team of researchers has identified a new model organism that may help elucidate the cellular mechanisms behind mechanosensation: the ordinary duck.HybZq_BLg0o
