Description

Ted Talk:

Dragonflies can catch prey with near perfect accuracy, the best among all predators. But how does something with so few neurons achieve such prowess? Neuroscientist Greg Gage and his colleagues explore how a dragonfly unerringly locks onto its preys and captures it within milliseconds using just sensors and a fake fly. On DIY Neuroscience, a TED original series, watch cutting-edge neuroscience experiments on a shoestring budget.
