... antagonism had the effect of reducing, rather than increasing, overall activity. Context-specific effects of DA signalling are not unexpected in birds, as it was previously shown that DA affects the motivation to sing ( Schroeder and Riters, 2006 ) but in a manner that is specific to certain social contexts...

Following a brief background account of parasitoid wasps that manipulate host behaviour, we survey specific aspects of the unique effects...

..., the last pigeons disappear straightforward from the release site. The question is whether this reflects improved orientation because of prolonged exposure to the release place or whether it reflects increased homing motivation. By releasing pigeons from a familiar site, we investigated the effects...

Nursing therefore appears to play an important role in structuring very early vocal communication between the mother and her neonate. In turn, if the motivational state...

.... longer than 10 min), LTM was present. We could further interfere with LTM formation by inducing inhibitory learning (i.e. backward conditioning) after the one-trial conditioning. Finally, we examined whether we could motivate snails to acquire LTM by depriving them of food for 5 days before the one-trial...

... recordings from NP1 in a semi-intact preparation show a change in firing pattern during an experimentally induced increase in prostate gland volume. The results indicate that NP1 serves as a nervous pathway for the male sexual drive. We propose a simple motivational model for male sexual behaviour in L...
