Does a starfish have a brain?
the starfish does not have a brain it is made up of nerve cells that control it's functions A starfish doesn't have a brain in its head like we do. Instead their entire nervous system acts like a distributed brain. So, it has a brain, just not like ours.

The brain is the control centre of the central nervous system,responsible for perception, attention, memory, emotion and action.
A starfish is a marine animal (echinoderm) that has five or more arms, so it is shaped like a star. Because it is not a fish, some now refer to it as a sea star . It has a hard, craggy upper shell and hundreds of sticky "feet" on its bottom side that let it attach itself to rocks.
Yes. Otherwise I would not be reading your question, nor would I be answering it.
Answer . If you are a human, then your brain is inside your cranium, or skull.
The brain is the convoluted organ within your cranium (skull). It is the major part of the central nervous system, controlling the functions of the body. It is also the seat of cognitive intelligence. The human brain consists of four major parts: cerebrum, cerebellum, brain stem, and diencephalon. …(the dienchephalon may also be grouped within the brain stem) ( Full Answer )
They are actually called seastars because fish have backbones and seastars don't so they shouldn't be calledstarfish. Sorry if this was not any help. .
umm.... we use our brain for thinking, speech, reasoning, talking. there are 4 lobes in the brain:. frontal lobe parietal lobe. temporal lobe. occipital lobe
The brain is an organ in your head that is protected by your skull. It controls all of the functions going in your body. It is divided in three parts namely cerebellum, cerebrum and brain stem..
Predators of a starfish include sea otters, manta rays, sharks,seagulls, and many others depending on where the starfish isliving.the star fish is mamals only
Superdomain Biota Domain Eukaryota Kingdom Animalia Subkingdom Bilateria Branch Deuterostomia Infrakingdom Coelomopora Phylum Echinodermata Subphylum Eleutherozoa Infraphylum Asterozoa Class Asteroidea
Sharks, fish and manta rays are predators of the starfish. Largerstarfish also prey on and attack smaller starfish.
They have 5 'legs', like a five pointed star, and have a sort of fuzzy, bumpy flesh. Having held one before, I know that they come in many colors, such as purple. Characteristics of a Starfish include: 1. Starfish bodies are highly flexible. 2. The starfish has no eyes, ears or nose and rely solely …on their legs for almost everything. 3. Most starfish feed on slow-moving or stationary animals, such as: oysters, snails and clams. ( Full Answer )
Starfish are most comonly found eating clams, oyesters, mustles, dead fish, sea weed, or they can be fed frozen meats. star fish have very low matabalism so you dont have to feed them that much very often. i am guessing you have a pet starfish? i do!. but what do i know im just 13, >__>". oh well i…f you need more advice you can email me. Fizzypopcicle@hotmail.com. thx bye :D ( Full Answer )
Yes a starfish can have eyes. Upto eight eyes and they can have them on any of their tentacles
A starfish's 'mouth' is on the bottom, centered. To get food, it will find a nice, tasty mollusc like a clam, use its arms to pry open the shell, and then suck out the contents with its mouth.
Water comes into the system via the madreporite. It is then circulated from the stone canal to the ring canal and into the radial canals. The radial canals carry water to the ampullae and provide suction to the tube feet. The tube feet latch on to surfaces and move in a wave, with one body section a…ttaching to the surfaces as another releases. ( Full Answer )
Your brain is the organ that enables you to manipulate and navigate the world around you.
It is where your memory is stored, feelings, and how you can tell what something is. If we didnt have it' wed all be dumb hobos
a brain is a important thing in your head it helps you with everything you do at home and at school
It is the central controller of your whole body it controls everything such as breathing or feelings or movement. What ever you do is your brains choice. you couldn't do anything without your brain.
Starfish generally do not have contact with other starfish. However, biologists have proven that during the breeding season, starfish send out signals when they are ready to reproduce. This causes the starfish to congregate during this time period.
Well a starfish is called a starfish because,it is shaped like a star. (answer found by 10 year old Katie Shymonowicz( Shy-mon-o-witz) Katie is right, but I must add that a starfish is no longer called a starfish. It is now called a "sea star." Starfish was a misnomer as it wasn't a fish. But …they get the name sea star because they live in the ocean and they are shaped like a star. (answer found by 11 year old Megan Varney) ( Full Answer )
if a starfish loses a limb,it will grow back,and the limb will form into a new starfish.
Inside a brain is: grey matter (the bodies of the brain cells) and white matter (the fat covered projections of the brain cells).
It controls whatever you do from walking to sleeping. for more information go to http://www.brainhealthandpuzzles.com/facts_on_the_human_brain.html
Starfish do have neurons, despite not having a brain... this allows it to "perceive" stimuli and to react to them automatically, like a reflex, without needing a brain to process anything.
The brain comprises left and right hemisheres. Each of which has a cortex (grey matter) and white fibre tracts (white matter). The hemispheres share common midbrain and brainstem components and also a cerebellum.
Starfish do not have true brains. They have a cluster of nerves called ganglia that form a ring in the centre of the starfish which is called the circumoral nerve ring. A radial nerve extends at right angles from the circumoral nerve ring into each arm. With the exception of eye spots in the tip of …each arm there are no specialised sense organs (such as eyes or ears). These eyespots sense light and send back messages to the main nerve centre. The starfish is a primitive organism and as such does not make conscious decisions to eat or sleep. Changes in light intensity will cause different firing rates of nerves, which may equate to sleep. Minute traces of odours from clams and mussels or from dead fish will also excite the nervous system and will initiate the feeding cycle. A lot of these "sleep/wake" cycles or feeding cycles will be dictated by changes in light intensity or tidal rise and fall. All the best Starfish do not have true brains.

Without a brain you would be "Dead in The Head," you would not be able to move talk do anything. Your brain is the central nervous system and is ad you can say the boss of everything.
Because of its shape. A starfish has five radiating arms that makes it look like the stereotypical image of a star (pentagram). Starfish, of course, are not actual fish, but rather marine echinoderms. The other name for a starfish is a "sea star."
Believe it or not, exercise can help your brain a lot. And of course do brain teasers and things, eating healthy, and studying.
their ecosystem are in the ocean..most of the starfish spent their times in seashore they don't go under the sea because they cant breathe under water...
They have enough surface area that they can breathe through theirskin. Random trivia fact: turtles can breathe through their butts.
To acquire an actual study sample, you would probably have to settle for an animal brain, and even those are restricted due to animal rights considerations. Chickens, frogs, lizards, and other simpler animals present no such restrictions, and the cost is mainly due to the chemical preservatives used…. ( Full Answer )
If we didnt have a brain, we would all be bumping into each other all day and we would all be as stupid as you.
Starfish can be male, female, or hermaphrodite. A hermaphrodite is a plant or animal that has reproductive organs of both sexes.
well it can hurt you because you cant breth okay people do you here me yes you do here me because i can here my selef okay i am 6 years old and i am in 1st grad
Yes, starfish are heterotrophs. All animals are actually heterotrophs. The term "heterotroph" means that the organism does not produce its own food source, but instead must find nutrition within its environment. It doesn't matter how the heterotroph finds food - it can be a grazing herbivore, a c…arnivore, a scavenger, or anything else. Plants are the most common example of an autotroph. They form their own food from sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide in the process known as photosynthesis. ( Full Answer )
The brain is an organ in your head that demands 75 percent of your energy. It is where thinking takes place, and all movement is planned. Your brain controls your whole body! It is also your neuro-center. The brain is more complex than all the circuits in your computer!!
a star fish is called a star fish because ther look like a star and they very slowly swim like a fish Jesus get it right
They are sea creatures such as the Triton Trumpet, Tropical Shrimps, Reef Crabs, Spider Crabs and some mollusks.
It's on the bottom of the starfish because that is where the mouth and stomach are.
They eat calms, oysters, mussels, small fish, sea snails , and barnacles. The predators that eat that are manta rays, some sharks and other bony fishes like to pick them off the bottom of the sea and eat them. Sometimes other larger starfishes since they can eat the starfish by attacking, kill and …then eat. ( Full Answer )
Because Starfish are Inverterbrites, nature has made it so they dont require a brain to survive. In effect this means that all the processes that happen inside are starfish are very simple and interconnected
If you didn't have a brain, you really couldn't do anything prettymuch. Example: You wouldn't be able to walk, because you wouldforget how to walk. Why we have a brain? We have a brain so we canthink, ( or walk. :-} ) If you didn't have a brain you wouldn't beable to ask this question. Actually walk…ing is controlled almost entirely by nerve paths inthe spine, the brain is not involved except to select where we arewalking to (part of thinking). ( Full Answer )

Your brain controls your temperature, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. It can also help you feel emotions, store memories and even help you stand up straight.
brains help the body parts move and so people can live no brain no life
how many staryfish can starfishs have? The answer is about million. But 99% or their babies get aeten
