The juvenile sea squirt wanders through the sea searching for a
suitable rock or hunk of coral to cling to and make its home for
life.  For this task, it has a rudimentary nervous system.  When it
finds its spot and takes root, it doesn't need its brain anymore,
so it eats it!  (It's rather like getting tenure.)
