If I Only Had a Brain Slime Mold is a single cell amoeba that has a memory, but no brain. Scientists have OBSERVED these decomposers and realized that they can complete a maze without retracing steps. there are 900 different species of this fascinating creator. Thousands of slime molds can join together and move in a single group. REsearchers have come up with many ways in which this organism can help our community. They can be helpful with highway planning, cancer research (because of the way they multiply), and even creating music. Sometimes people find Slime Mold in their garden and think it is dog vomit.
