This sounds really interesting! Have you guys found anything significant in this project yet?
Thanks for responding! Yes we have just recently completed the pilot trial of our study. We were successful in conditioning the octopus to two separate textures. If you are interested in learning more and are in the area Andrew and I will be presenting at the Undergraduate Research Symposium this Thursday April 21 at the Illini Union between 9 and 10:15.
Andrew and Alex are undergraduate students working in Gillette Lab at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
