This week Quentin Cooper feels his way round a new aid to keyhole surgery, tracks brainy bees from flower to flower and wonders how they do it so efficiently. He hears how unblocking the nose of a primitive fish enabled vertebrates to develop jaws, how plesiosaurs may have been caring parents, and how we perceive passing time in a blink of an eye.
