TL;DR: The practical consequence of colonisation by barnacle larvae and spores of algae is biofouling - something that has plagued mariners for years - causing increased drag and, in extreme cases, corrosion.
Abstract: Organisms that colonise underwater surfaces, such as barnacle larvae and spores of algae, use a diverse array of biological 'glues' to provide both temporary and more permanent adhesion. The practical consequence of colonisation by these organisms is biofouling - something that has plagued mariners for years - causing increased drag and, in extreme cases, corrosion. Might there be a biological solution to this biological problem?

TL;DR: Using an optical method for measuring membrane potential, this work has been able to monitor action-potential activity simultaneously in 14 neurons of the supraesophageal ganglion of the barnacle.
Abstract: 1. Using an optical method for measuring membrane potential, we have been able to monitor action-potential activity simultaneously in 14 neurons of the supraesophageal ganglion of the barnacle. 2. Under favorable conditions, 4-mV synaptic potentials could also be detected optically.
