[ughuslfb] Brain-damaged cockroaches

Mythbusters demonstrated that cockroaches seemingly recover after being submerged underwater for 30 minutes.  However, were they permanently damaged by the experience?  Humans suffer permanent brain damage after oxygen deprivation in cases of near drowning.

Initially, it seems comical to try to measure whether a cockroach suffered brain damage, as they didn't have much of a brain to start with.
