(BBC News) Snails use two brain cells to make "complex decisions", a team of scientists has found.
Researchers at the University of Sussex said one cell told the snail if it was hungry while the other cell told it if food was present.
The experiments used electrodes to measure brain activity of the molluscs when searching for lettuce.
