Sodium + Dead Cuttlefish

Sodium + Dead Cuttlefish

Sodium is responsible for much of the activity of nerve impulses. An excess of sodium poured basically directly on the nerves causes the process to start up, causing the dead fish to flinch. In a living creature, electrical impulses from the brain would be responsible for this muscle movement, but since the electrical part is essentially overridden with lots of chemicals, it looks like it’s alive. It [probably, i’m no expert] doesn’t happen to humans because we have skin covering our muscles.
