It is not really sober actually sober words of course, but sober teachings of electrical impulses, which would be exchanged between mycological organisms and which could constitute a sober form language. At least that’s the theory presented by Toby Adamatzky, the British computer scientist who heads the Unconventional Computing Laboratory at the University of the West of England, Bristol. It shows that the duration and amplitude of the electrical activity of fungi, specific to each species, could very well constitute a form of conversation.
Action potential images are generally considered key attributes of neurons, and this neural activity is interpreted as the language of the nervous system. But many organisms with no nervous system, including fungi, also produce photos of electrical potential. During previous research, Adamatzky recorded the electrical potential of oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus djamor
), highlighting two activity spells: high-frequency signals (with a period of 2.6 minutes) and low-frequency signals (with a period of 14 minutes ).
Other research has also shown that fungi respond to mechanical, chemical and optical activation sober modifying the sober diagram their electrical activity which in sober In many cases, consisted of a customization of the characteristics with their “teach” points, or a temporal sequence of the action potentials generated. The patterns were similar to those seen in the human hand nervous system. Adamatzky and his team therefore set out to decode the mysterious language of mushrooms.
An electrical activity varies, but not random
Previous research has suggested that fungi conduct electrical impulses through sober long underground filamentous constructs called hyphae. In particular, there is evidence showing that these hyphae are involved in the relationships between the mycelium and the roots of plants during the formation of mycorrhizae, the symbiotic association between the two organisms. Under certain circumstances, the frequency of electrical impulses increases, suggesting that these buildings are capable of transmitting data just as human nerve cells do.
For however, can this electrical activity be assimilated to a sober form of language? This is what Adamatzky and his colleagues wanted to determine. As part of this study, the researchers analyzed the sober electrical activity of four species of sober fungi: ghost mushrooms (Omphalotus nidiformis), Enoki mushrooms (Flammulina velutipes, commonly called velvet foot collybia), split gill mushrooms ( Schizophyllum commun electronic) and caterpillar mushrooms (Cordyceps militaris).
