Hello I am currently planing an experiment based on the transfer of learned behavior between Ph.polycephalum based on this paper: http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/283/1845/20162382 for my EPQ. The idea is to take habituated Slime and expose them to a number of them to a range of different temperatures and see how the ability of transferred information is effected and i was wondering at what temperature the slime stop functioning would anyone be able to help me or know any papers that i could read on the matter?
They'll still move around ( slowly) in a fridge, optimal is supposed to be ( I haven't tested) 25c, I've had them up to 38c where the issue is rapid contamination growth. There is paper that showed habituation to 'uncomfortably' cold temperatures in return for food - remind me on Monday and I'll dig it out from work.
Okay then thank you, would you be able to send me the paper soon?
