The ability of some animals to regrow missing body parts following injury is one of the great mysteries of biology. Planarians are flatworms that can regenerate new heads, or any other body part, in about a week. In his 2012 Midsummer Nights' Science lecture, Peter Reddien discusses the fundamentals of planarian regeneration, and new findings that are critical for understanding their dramatic regenerative feats.
