...Arunkumar Krishnan; Helgi B. Schiöth; Peter A. V. Anderson The origin and evolution of the nervous system is one of the most intriguing and enigmatic events in biology. The recent sequencing of complete genomes from early metazoan organisms provides a new platform to study the origins of neuronal...

...Frederic Libersat; Ram Gal Summary Millions of years of co-evolution have driven parasites to display very complex and exquisite strategies to manipulate the behaviour of their hosts. However, although parasite-induced behavioural manipulation is a widespread phenomenon, the underlying neuronal...

...Aleksey Y. Malyshev; Pavel M. Balaban SUMMARY Beating of cilia lining the foregut of gastropods facilitates the swallowing of food and, therefore, plays a role in feeding behavior. Despite the fact that neural control of feeding is well studied in mollusks, no neurons controlling ciliary beating...

... Movement Detectors(DCMDs), respond to objects on an impending collision course. However, little is known about how these neurons respond when challenged with multiple,looming objects of different complex shapes. I presented locusts with objects resembling either another locust or a bird approaching...

...Philip E. Bickler SUMMARY An effective treatment for brain ischemia is a pressing medical need. Research on brain ischemia has largely focused on understanding the mechanisms of neuron death as a way of identifying targets for therapy. An attractive alternative approach is to identify the survival...

...Philip E. Bickler; Paul H. Donohoe SUMMARY The damage caused to mammalian neurons during ischaemic events in the brain(e.g. following a stroke), is an area of major interest to neuroscientists. The neurons of hypoxia-tolerant vertebrates offer unique models for identifying new strategies to enhance...

... by injecting sensitive animals with the neuropeptide ecdysis-triggering hormone (ETH). Exposure to ETH stimulates the release of eclosion hormone (EH) which, in turn, activates a set of neurons containing crustacean cardioactive peptide (CCAP) by elevating their levels of intracellular cyclic GMP. We...

...Seth A. Budick; Donald M. O’Malley ABSTRACT Larval zebrafish ( Brachydanio rerio ) are a popular model system because of their genetic attributes, transparency and relative simplicity. They have approximately 200 neurons that project from the brainstem into the spinal cord. Many of these neurons...
