Sample Book Insights:
#1 We had a very ancient ancestor that was very similar to a modern-day amphioxus. They inhabited the oceans about 550 million years ago. They had no brains, but they had senses like yours and could sense changes in light.
#2 The emergence of predators during the Cambrian period transformed the planet into a more competitive and dangerous place. Creatures that could sense their surroundings and move efficiently were more likely to survive and thrive.
#3 Allostasis is the process by which an animal prepares itself for a predicted event. It is the brain’s ability to predict and prepare for the body’s needs before they arise.
