AFAIK, it’s a different project and it’s for a fly’s larva. It has “only” over 3000 neurons, while our drosophila has probably about 200k neurons. Quite a difference, I’d say. Yet, the larval project is still very interesting.
yeah @Krzysztof_Kruk is right, that larval connectome is a few thousand neurons vs the whole fly brain being much larger. Also since it’s a larva (no legs or wings, just a tiny worm basically) it doesn’t exhibit most of the more complex behaviour that is studied in adults. Still, it’s impressive and important work. We’ll likely import the larval connectome into codex. Can let you guys know when it’s up if you’re interested in exploring.
Fun fact: adult Drosophila has more neurons than a larval zebrafish and more than a lobster.
Also more than a sponge, but that’s not hard to achieve
However, an elephant has almost 3 times more neurons, than a human. It’s almost the same difference as betweeen humans and gorillas (are we gorillas in the elephant world? ).
