Aminergic neurons in the brain of blowflies and Drosophila: dopamine- and tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactive neurons and their relationship with putative histaminergic neurons
The morphology of the extensively arborizing aminergic neurons described suggests that they have modulatory functions in the brain and subesophageal ganglion of the blowflies.

Factors that regulate insulin producing cells and their output in Drosophila
This review summarizes what is known about regulation of production and release of ILPs in Drosophila with focus on insulin signaling in the daily life of the fly and physiological conditions under which IPC activity may be regulated, including nutritional states, stress and diapause induction.
Common design in a unique midline neuropil in the brains of arthropods.
γ‐Aminobutyric acid (GABA) signaling components in Drosophila: Immunocytochemical localization of GABAB receptors in relation to the GABAA receptor subunit RDL and a vesicular GABA transporter

The findings suggest that slow GABA transmission is very widespread in the Drosophila CNS and that fast RDL‐mediated transmission generally occurs at the same sites.
Insulin-producing cells in the brain of adult Drosophila are regulated by the serotonin 5-HT1A receptor

The findings suggest that serotonin acts on brain IPCs via the 5-HT1A receptor, thereby affecting their activity and probably insulin signaling, and this pathway is identified in the Drosophila brain.
