+ - 'Franken-Tadpoles' See With Eyes on Their Backs->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit writes: In the swamp of the blind, the frog with one eye surgically attached to its back is king. Researchers have found a way to transplant an eyeball onto a blind tadpole's spine that confers some degree of vision—the first evidence that functional sight can occur so far from the brain. Such research promises to give scientists a better understanding of how transplanted tissue connects to the nervous system, paving the way for improved regenerative therapies in humans--and ways to build new bionic technologies.
