Chromatophores?

Postby lifescience » Sun Dec 12, 2004 5:16 am

Chromatophores, the octopus pigment cells? I'm very interested in learing the triggers that the octopus uses to change these cells from one color to the other to mimic the surroundings. Furthermore, the cell reactions as well. If anyone can answer this for me in grotesquely great detail I would appreciate it.

Getting a bit late at night, so am also getting a bit lazy. Here are a few sites that'll help you out a bit.

There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary, and those who don't.
