    Neural circuits in worms similar to those in humans


    Green and yellow fluorescence mark the processes and cell bodies of some C. elegans neurons. Researchers have found that the strategies used by this tiny roundworm to control its motions are remarkably similar to those used by the human brain to command movement of our body parts. From a November 2011 University of Michigan news release.
