Odd that mammals can harbor an algae virus.  Scary that there is such a direct correlation between infection and cognitive ability.  A good find that will lead to interesting, possibly useful results.

this is very interesting.  i didn't even know there was such thing as an algae virus!  it really makes me consider how we have organized our 5 kingdoms of life.

so, is the algae virus making people slower, or is it choosing slower people?  :)

Signs would point to the virus making people slower, although frankly that is a very good question.

hahaha!  :)
