James S.H. Wong and Catharine H. Rankin

Online publication date:
May 2019
The nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans), is an organism useful for the study of learning and memory at the molecular, cellular, neural circuitry, and behavioral levels. Its ... More

Cephalopod Nervous System Organization  

Z. Yan Wang and Clifton W. Ragsdale

Online publication date:
May 2019
Over 700 species of cephalopods live in the Earth’s waters, occupying almost every marine zone, from the benthic deep to the open ocean to tidal waters. The greatly varied forms and ... More

Electrophysiology and Behavior of Cnidarian Nervous Systems  

Robert W. Meech

Online publication date:
May 2019
Although the Cnidaria have evolved a wide range of body forms matched with an equally varied neural anatomy, individual species exhibit common patterns of behavior. For example, in all ... More

Crustacean Visual Circuits Underlying Behavior  

Daniel Tomsic and Julieta Sztarker

Online publication date:
Mar 2019

Hemichordate Nervous System  

Norio Miyamoto and Hiroshi Wada

Online publication date:
Feb 2018
Hemichordates are marine invertebrates consisting of two distinct groups: the solitary enteropneusts and the colonial pterobranchs. Hemichordates are phylogenetically a sister group to ... More
