Description

How do animals construct tissues, organs, and limbs in the right places during development? How do some animals manage to regenerate missing body parts?

On this episode of Big Biology, we talk with Michael Levin, a biologist at Tufts University who studies how electric fields inside animals guide cells during development and regeneration. His work shows that electric fields play fundamental roles in structuring body plans and, in some species, can even be inherited across generations.
