What a human body?

looks like an x-ray of hand with six fingers.

Would you Like to have six fingers instead of five? In an exciting , recently published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers decided to study the ability of people with extra fingers. This condition, known as polydactyly, affects about two of every 1,000 newborns. But, since it is believed that the extra fingers are not needed and will not work, they are usually removed. However, this is not always the case: some people with polydactyly decide to keep extra fingers. So, scientists have studied a mother and son who live with six fingers of the left hand. As a result, scientists made a series of discoveries about its function. According to the study, changes in the human body should not be neglected.

Man with six fingers?

So, by studying the six toes of mother and son, first scientists have identified anatomical features: it turned out that the mother and son's sixth finger had its own muscles, nerves and tendons. Its comparable strength and independence movements were on par with the other fingers.

As a sixth finger can be functional? When your grows and develops, he builds a "map" of your body. You can't feel or move parts of his body that are not represented on this map. The discovery of the fact that mother and son can move the sixth finger, prompting researchers to think about how their brain “sees” the sixth finger.

Scientists have discovered that each of the six fingers of the subjects were submitted to separate areas of the motor cortex . Finally, with the help of elaborate video games, the researchers showed that their six-point subjects can perform tasks with one hand. Surprisingly also is the fact that you, an ordinary five-fingered creatures, for such tasks will need both hands. By combining all the data, the researchers came to the conclusion that the extra limbs developing brain.

And you wouldn't mind having a sixth finger? Let's discuss it in

Why mutations — is it good?

Although this study is limited to data of only two subjects, its effects were nevertheless far-reaching. Clear demonstration of the fact that the sixth finger increases the functionality of the hands, is a convincing argument in favor of the capacity of the human brain to control machines more complex than that .

The Study polydactyly of the hands and the brain, which controls them, is a test example of the benefits of this unusual research. Scientists are making great efforts to control and standardization: for example, the effectiveness of a particular drug can be identified in virtually identical laboratory mice.

the Laboratory mouse still remain favorite subjects in scientific laboratories around the world.

But there are those few who pursue the exotic and unique animals: heat-seeking snakes that adapted to the cold octopus or, as in this case, people with extra fingers. Turns out dreams of extra limbs might not be so terrible, and the human body and our brain is capable of much. Turns.
