Unformatted text preview: Brieana Mackey & Shreya Maddireddy Carpenter 1 st 11.10.09 Cells can transmit information between each other. This lab was done to allow students to analyze cell communication. An experiment was conducted using a special group of cells in order to see how they communicate information in response to different environmental stimuli. Cellular slime mold s were used in this study. Cellular slime molds live as a large collection of separate cells traveling in proximity. Each cell lives a solitary life with environmental conditions to stimulate the cells to come together into a tightly packed mass of cells. This mass undergoes sexual reproduction or forms into a dormant structure. Slime molds are best used in experiments to study cell communication because the cell communication between slime mold cells can be evidently seen by scientists. Environmental Factors Tests: Temperature Change This test shows the affect of temperature on the behavior of the slime molds. It shows if the samples aggregate or not. It can be seen that four out of the eight samples molds....
