So there I was, doing something entirely mundane, googling for "ctenophore neuron." Yeah, like you've never done it. Anyway, I stumbled on a new evolutionary neuroscience blog that has taken as its premise that elder things were highly evolved ctenophores, and riffs on that in terms of the implications of their evolved nervous systems and such. Personally, I'd always thought of them is echinoderms, but who am I to say?

Anyway, check this out:

And he goes on in other blog posts, so far they are:

http://network.nature.com/people/ca...roduct-of-any-cell-growth-science-knows-about

http://network.nature.com/people/ca.../16/phylogenetic-systematics-for-elder-things

http://network.nature.com/people/caio_maximino/blog/2008/09/16/the-nervous-systems-of-ctenophores

http://network.nature.com/people/ca...hnglui-mglwnafh-cthulhu-rlyeh-wgahnagl-fhtagn

http://network.nature.com/people/ca...-principles-from-what-we-speculated-until-now

and he'll probably keep adding to it, so here's his "cthulhu mythos" tag category

Note that this is on an official Nature(tm) site. Sheesh... my "wall of text" posts never get published in Nature(tm), even in their blogs :tongue:
