We explored the prospect of using the bioelectrical potentiaLs of Philodendron cordatum as a new method for studying the behavior of plants. The bioelectrical potentials were recorded from equipment typically associated with EEG recordings. Plants were exposed to a 6-hr. training period of light only, dark only, or alternating 1-min. periods of light/dark. Following training, all plants were exposed to a 10-min. testing period in darkness during which bioelectrical potentials were recorded… CONTINUE READING
