A recent study finds interesting adaptative qualities in humans. Our brains develop based on what we use regularly. Anna Gislen and her team found that a tribe on the west coast of Thailand have developed their eyes to see better underwater.
Her[Gislen] work offers new proof of the body's remarkable capacity for adaptation -- its ability to go beyond standard biological bounds and even physically remodel itself when novel needs arise. It could also invigorate efforts to protect the threatened sea gypsy culture.
