Trenches of Discovery: Communication technologies in the human machine

Have you ever stopped to consider what makes you a single organism? It might sound strange, but it is a question dripping in biological significance. You may think of yourself as a neatly packaged single unit, yet you are probably also aware that this one unit is made up of tiny individual cells working together. But how do 75,000,000,000,000-odd cells cooperate with such precision? Why your cells work together is entirely separate question with answers to do with filling evolutionary niches and delegating functional roles; I'm talking about how they do it. That's the million dollar question! 

To find out the answer, visit the Trenches of Discovery.
