AXOLOTL, the regenerative animal

The axolotl is a Mexican salamander with an incredible ability: cut its leg off, and the limb will grow right back! How it does this and why humans can't is still a bit of a mystery.

HARVARD University, San Diego, University of California, Irvine ... many researchers illustrate how axolotls can grow a third limb via wounding and grafting of neighboring cells. They are studying these amphibians to understand the underlying mechanisms for their miraculous regenerative powers.

The shrimp with scanner eyes ...

Among the many research projects conducted at the University of Queensland in Australia, those of Professor Justin Marshall are of particular interest to us. It concerns the faculties of the 'famous' mantis shrimp or 'multicoloured squid' (Odontodactylus scyllarus). An animal with Herculean strength, it is found in the Indian Ocean and in the western part of the Pacific Ocean.

Studied for the manufacture of ultra-resistant materials, this mantis shrimp is also the subject of interest to researchers for its amazing eyes. These are composed of ommatidia, which are themselves made up of photoreceptor cells with fine cell extensions, microvilli, that can filter polarised light. Polarised light is light that vibrates in one direction only. Filtering it makes it possible to better detect contrasts (think of the filters on cameras or sunglasses), but also... cancers! Cancers reflect polarised light differently than healthy tissue.

This property inspired Justin Marshall and his colleagues at the University of Queensland in Australia to build a camera that detects tumours, something our visual system is normally unable to do. Here, the camera converts images that are invisible to us into colours that we can perceive.
