sciencehabit writes “Science answers the question: What happens when you put a snail on speed? From the article: ‘The results suggest that meth improves memory, something that has been previously observed in creatures with large, complex brains like rats and humans. But since the snails store their memories in a simple, three-neuron network, the team hopes that studying the meth effect in these gastropods will help pinpoint how the drug’s memory magnification powers work.’”
