Neurogenesis in adult insect mushroom bodies
The occurrence of neurogenesis in mushroom bodies of adult insects belonging to several orthopteroid and coleopteran families is described. Using injections of 5‐bromo, T2′‐deoxy we showed thatExpand

Decreasing Glutamate Buffering Capacity Triggers Oxidative Stress and Neuropil Degeneration in the Drosophila Brain
L-glutamate is both the major brain excitatory neurotransmitter and a potent neurotoxin in mammals. Glutamate excitotoxicity is partly responsible for cerebral traumas evoked by ischemia and has beenExpand

Radioimmunoassay of insect juvenile hormones and of their diol derivatives.
We have developed a radioimmunoassay for insect juvenile hormones. The C18 hormone (JH I) was first converted into diol by opening the 10, 11-epoxy ring. Diol was then succinylated and coupled toExpand

Hormonal regulation of behavioural development in the honey bee is based on changes in the rate of juvenile hormone biosynthesis
Abstract In the adult worker honey bee (Apis mellifera L.), increases in the haemolymph titre of juvenile hormone underlie behavioural development, from nest duties to foraging. However, theExpand

Colony Integration in Honey Bees: Mechanisms of Behavioral Reversion
After confirming that worker honey bees (Apis mellifera) can revert from foraging to brood care, we determined whether juvenile hormone (JH) mediates this form of plasticity in behavioral developmentExpand

Hormonal and Genetic Control of Behavioral Integration in Honey Bee Colonies
The ability of insect colonies to adjust the division of labor among workers in response to changing environmental and colony conditions, coupled with research showing genetic effects on the divisionExpand

Caste and metamorphosis: hemolymph titers of juvenile hormone and ecdysteroids in last instar honeybee larvae.
Juvenile hormone (JH) and ecdysteroid titers are critical factors for caste development and metamorphosis in the last larval instar of the honeybee, Apis mellifera. Two highly sensitiveExpand

The common properties of neurogenesis in the adult brain: from invertebrates to vertebrates.
Until recently, it was believed that adult brains were unable to generate any new neurons. However, it is now commonly known that stem cells remain in the adult central nervous system and that adultExpand

Development of cricket mushroom bodies
Mushroom bodies are recognized as a multimodal integrator for sensorial stimuli. The present study analyzes cricket mushroom body development from embryogenesis to adulthood. In the house cricket,Expand

Neurogenesis in an adult insect brain and its hormonal control
HORMONALLY mediated changes in behaviour patterns are found in many animal species, including adult insects1–4, raising the possibility that the neurological modifications linked with such changesExpand
