A GAL4-driver line resource for Drosophila neurobiology.
We established a collection of 7,000 transgenic lines of Drosophila melanogaster. Expression of GAL4 in each line is controlled by a different, defined fragment of genomic DNA that serves as aExpand

Tools for neuroanatomy and neurogenetics in Drosophila
We demonstrate the feasibility of generating thousands of transgenic Drosophila melanogaster lines in which the expression of an exogenous gene is reproducibly directed to distinct small subsets ofExpand

Refinement of Tools for Targeted Gene Expression in Drosophila
A wide variety of biological experiments rely on the ability to express an exogenous gene in a transgenic animal at a defined level and in a spatially and temporally controlled pattern. We describeExpand

A Systematic Nomenclature for the Insect Brain
Despite the importance of the insect nervous system for functional and developmental neuroscience, descriptions of insect brains have suffered from a lack of uniform nomenclature. AmbiguousExpand

Standardized atlas of the brain of the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria
In order to understand the connectivity of neuronal networks, their constituent neurons should ideally be studied in a common framework. Since morphological data from physiologically characterizedExpand

Multiple Memory Traces for Olfactory Reward Learning in Drosophila
Physical traces underlying simple memories can be confined to a single group of cells in the brain. In the fly Drosophila melanogaster, the Kenyon cells of the mushroom bodies house traces for bothExpand

BrainAligner: 3D Registration Atlases of Drosophila Brains
Analyzing Drosophila melanogaster neural expression patterns in thousands of three-dimensional image stacks of individual brains requires registering them into a canonical framework based on aExpand

The Virtual Insect Brain protocol: creating and comparing standardized neuroanatomy
TLDR
This paper describes the Virtual Insect Brain (VIB) protocol, a script suite for the quantitative assessment, comparison, and presentation of neuroanatomical data in the fly Drosophila melanogaster. Expand

Mesencephalic origin of the inferior lobe in zebrafish
BackgroundAlthough the overall brain organization is shared in vertebrates, there are significant differences within subregions among different groups, notably between Sarcopterygii (lobe-finnedExpand
