In a short presentation that provides a wealth of critical information, Michael Levin reports on the work of his lab at Tufts University on research into how animals control growth and form. All cells, not just nerve cells, communicate electrically, and evidence is growing that it is bioelectrical circuits that play the key role in the plasticity of shape and anatomy. His lab has shown the ability to induce whole organ formation, trigger regeneration, reprogram tumors, and repair birth defects – to radically change the body plan without editing the genome.
