Invitation to a Cocktail Party per C. elegans

Social Worms

In this week’s edition of Nature, researchers at Rockefeller University discovered neurons in C. elegans that mediate social behavior (on left). The pair of neurons has been characterized as RMG. Removal of RMG, however, inhibits socializing (on right).

My next question; does the c.elegans prefer a martini shaken or stirred?
