While the human medical uses for ketamine are still being explored, German and American scientists are making great use of the drug on another front. Looking to learn about neural maps and hearing in prehistoric creatures, biologists Lutz Kettler and Catherine Carr injected 40 American alligators with ketamine and gave them headphones in a recent study.
Published in the Journal of Neuroscience, the paper aims to learn more about how dinosaurs were able to hear by using their closest living descendant—the alligator, which has been on Earth for more than 200 million years. After sedating the alligators with ketamine, the creatures were equipped with Yuin PK2 earbuds, which played sounds meant to imitate natural noises from a variety of distances and locations. Tracking their neural responses with electrodes, the scientists found out that alligators hearing works quite similar to that of birds, another direct descendant of prehistoric creatures. Insights gained from this study include the affirmation that birds and alligators both evolved from similar dinosaur ancestors, and that the hearing functions of alligators and birds have evolved similarly over millions of years, even with the drastic variations in animal size and anatomy.
It seems deadmau5 is perennially hard at work. From consistently live streaming his creation process for fans and overhauling his Cube rig for the third time, to scoring films and pulling double duty at Ultra this year, performing under both his deadmau5 and Testpilot monikers, it seems Joel Zimmerman rarely takes a moment to smell the roses, if ever. Luckily for fans, the Mau5trap head honcho keeps the pedal to the floor, and his latest offering comes by way of a rare Testpilot outing, on perhaps the most renown mix show in electronic music. That’s right—we’re getting a Testpilot Essential Mix.
The BBC Radio 1 mix, debuting on March 23, is actually billed as deadmau5/Testpilot, suggesting that Joel will be flipping between aliases, and a trove of new material is likely underway. The Essential Mix comes hot off the heels of the recent release of Testpilot’s full Electric Forest performance from 2018. Revisit the Electric Forest set below in preparation for one of the most anticipated Essential Mixes of the year.
