Individual Brain Cell Recognizes Halle Berry
 / 

Say WHAT?? Malcolm Ritter of the AP reports:

When scientists sampled brain cell activity in people who were scrutinizing dozens of pictures, they found some individual cells that reacted to a particular celebrity, landmark, animal or object.

Apparently this suggests that information could be stored on something close to a cell-by-cell basis, instead of distributed over huge complex networks of cells.

Either that or SCIENCE IS CRAZY.
