Insane in the Chromatophores

Well, this is probably the best neuroscience video of the year =) Guys from the Backyardbrains went to the Woodshole Marine Laboratory, and there connected to a motor nerve in a squid. And squids can change color, you know. So what would happen if you now play some music into the nerve? Well, check it out!



This is a modification of their original demonstration with a cockroach leg:

And is reminiscent of this dancing hair cell video:

But this time it is also beautiful. Not just freaky, but also really beautiful!
