Towards slime mould colour sensor Recognition of colours by Physarum polycephalum

It is showed that the regular patterns of oscillations in the surface electrical potential of the slime mould are changed when the slime mould is subjected to mechanical, chemical, electrical or optical stimuli, in concrete in this way they show that slime mold recognises red and blue colour and they map colours to alterations in the oscillations: illumination with a white colour increases diversity of amplitudes and periods of oscillations, other colours increase diversity either of the amplitude or the period.
