The researchers from Georgia Tech report in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that they dosed the embryos of rock-dwelling cichlids with lithium chloride. Within days, they had developed the brains of sand-dwelling cichlids. These sand-dwelling cousins of the fish have brains with very different characteristics, including extreme variations in the vision-processing regions of the brain.

According to a release from Georgia Tech, this discovery overturns some long-held theories about brain development:
