Scientists discovered a way to read the minds of jellyfish

Even though jellyfish don't have brains, scientists have figured out a way to read their minds – in a manner of speaking.

With a clever bit of genetic tinkering, we can now watch how the neurons in a tiny species of see-through jellyfish work together to make complex autonomous movements, like grabbing and eating prey.

Clytia hemisphaerica is the perfect model to study for this sort of behavior. Because this specific species of jellyfish is so tiny (only about a centimeter in diameter), it's entire nervous system can easily fit under a microscope.
