What Does a Whale Shark’s Brain Look Like and why Should We Care?
by Jason G. Goldman
The largest fish in the ocean is the whale shark (Rhincodon typus). This massive, migratory fish can grow up to twelve meters in length, but its enormous mouth is designed to eat the smallest of critters: plankton. While the biggest, the whale shark isn’t the only gigantic filter-feeding shark out there: the basking shark and the megamouth shark also sieve enormous amounts of the tiny organisms from the sea in order to survive.
While scientists like Al Dove and Craig McClain (of Deep Sea News) are learning more and more about the basic biology and behavior of these magnificent creatures, other scientists are busy investigating their neuroanatomy. A few years ago, Kara E. Yopak and Lawrence R. Frank from the University of California in San Diego got their hands on two whale shark brains from an aquarium, and put them into an MRI scanner.
But they weren’t just interested in imaging the brains of the whale sharks. What they wanted to know was how the organization of whale shark brains compared to the brains of other shark species for which scientists had previously obtained neuroanatomical data…

The renowned Smithfield Meat Market in East London is hosting a pop-up art installation sponsored by Capcom called Wesker & Son Resident Evil Human Butchery to promote the release of the game Resident Evil 6. All proceeds from the sale of the meat will be donated to the Limbless Association, which provides information and support to the limb-loss community.
