A series of ethological experiments on the primitive unicellular amoeboid organism Physarum polycephalum has shown that it possesses an unexpectedly high ability of information processing. This organism can solve mazes and certain optimization problems, and can demonstrate both anticipatory and contemplative behavior. A number of mathematical models have been proposed to describe and understand this smart behavior. We survey the investigations that have been performed on the cell level.
