Jellyfish are primitive invertebrates that can be found in every ocean and at every depth, from the deep sea to the surface. And now they appear in digital form on the sixth floor of the Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, where a stunning display welcomes visitors to the neurosciences clinics. Although the conventional wisdom has long been that jellies lack a brain, they actually have a central nervous system. Their fluorescence and unique neural architecture have caught the attention of researchers worldwide. The digital display of these alien-like creatures has become a favorite of patients and top neurosurgeons alike, who find the majestic movements of the jellies soothing.
