An international group of scientists say their latest research will upturn one of the earliest scientific discoveries ever made about human sperm. In a new paper out Friday, they seem to show that sperm cells don’t propel themselves by simply flicking their tails back and forth, as is commonly believed. Rather, sperm perform a complex routine of three-dimensional rolling and spinning motions that only make them look like they’re lashing their tails when viewed through a typical microscope.An international group of scientists say their latest research will upturn one of the earliest scientific discoveries ever made about human sperm.

High-speed 3-D microscopy and mathematical analyses reveal that rolling and lopsided tail flicks keep the cells swimming in a straight line.

Developed by scientists led from Bristol, the method has overturned a 350-year-old belief that sperm tails lash 'with a snakelike movement, like eels in water.'Developed by scientists led from Bristol, the method has overturned a 350-year-old belief that sperm tails lash 'with a snakelike movement, like eels in water.'

Sperm can't beat their tails symmetrically, new research finds, so they spiral through fluids like corkscrewing otters. New research upends more than three centuries of beliefs about how sperm move.

Mathematicians conducted a 3D analysis of sperm, showing that individuals spin as they move, rather than moving back and forth.Mathematicians conducted a 3D analysis of sperm, showing that individuals spin as they move, rather than moving back and forth.

Scientists shatter the accepted view of how sperm swim — in 3D

Theory of how sperm reach the egg has been turned on its head

For more than 340 years, science believed a man's sperm wiggled its way to its prize, much like a snake slithering side to side through water. Now, a new study says that movement was an optical illusion.

Sperm have a weird way of swimming and we only noticed after 300 years | New Scientist

Researchers reveal that human sperm roll, not wriggle, as they swim."Sperm are very cheeky little creatures," according to researchers.
