Among the animals that are appealing “cover models” for scientific journals, lancelets don´t spring readily to mind. Slender, limbless, primitive blobs that look pretty much the same end to end, lancelets “are extremely boring. I wouldn´t recommend them for a home aquarium,” says Enrico Nasi, adjunct senior scientist in the MBL´s Cellular Dynamics Program. Yet Nasi and his collaborators managed to land a lancelet on the cover of The Journal of...

It is a reddish-gray glandular structure that forms the roof of the third ventricle in the brain, between the two lateral ventricles, tucked in a groove near the thalamic bodies. Its body is relatively the size of a grain of rice; it’s shaped like a pine cone and has an infindibular stalk projecting from it....
