The researchers then applied the slime mold algorithm to data containing the locations of 37000 galaxies mapped by the sloan digital sky survey at distances corresponding to 300 million light years. Plasmodial slime molds like physarum shown here are basically enormous single cells with thousands of nuclei.

The single celled physarum polcephalum or slime mold does not have a brain or nervous system but is able to remember the location of a food source a new study reveals. The term slime mold embraces a heterogeneous assemblage of organisms whose juxtaposition reflects a historical confusion. It may just look like a yellowish streak. That new structure remains in place long after its finished its meal.

A computer algorithm is similar to a recipe that tells a computer precisely what steps to take to solve a problem. Polycephalum a yellow slime mold remembers where it ate by reorienting its tendrils toward the food source.
