Genes required for the functions of olfactory AWA neuron regulate the longevity of Caenorhabditis elegans in an insulin/IGF signaling-dependent fashion
To investigate the interaction between the genes required for the functions of AWA olfactory neuron and insulin/IGF signaling in regulating the longevity of nematode Caenorhabditis elegans (C.Expand
Molecular control of memory in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
Model invertebrate organism Caenorhabditis elegans has become an ideal model to unravel the complex processes of memory. C. elegans has three simple forms of memory: memory for thermosensation,Expand
Modulation of the assay system for the sensory integration of 2 sensory stimuli that inhibit each other in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
To perform the modulation of an assay system for the sensory integration of 2 sensory stimuli that inhibit each other. The assay system for assessing the integrative response to 2Expand
Regulation of aging by unc-13 and sbt-1 in Caenorhabditis elegans is temperature-dependent
To investigate the role of environmental factor—temperature in the regulation of aging process by unc-13 and sbt-1 in Caenorhabditis elegans. The lifespan, the speed of pharynx pumping, and theExpand
UNC-64 and RIC-4, the plasma membrane-associated SNAREs syntaxin and SNAP-25, regulate fat storage in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
To investigate whether genes required for synaptogenesis and synaptic function are also involved in fat storage control in Caenorhabditis elegans. Fat storage was examined in mutants of genesExpand
Evaluation of the long-term memory for thermosensation regulated by neuronal calcium sensor-1 in Caenorhabditis elegans
To evaluate whether the thermotaxis tracking model is suitable for assessing long-term memory (LTM) in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Animals were trained at 20 °C overnight in presence ofExpand
HLB-1 functions as a new regulator for the organization and function of neuromuscular junctions in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
To evaluate the functions of HLB-1 in regulating the organization and function of neuromuscular junctions, effects of hlb-1 mutation on the synaptic structures were revealed by uncovering theExpand
Molecular actions guiding neural regeneration in planarian
Planarian is among the simplest animals that possess a centralized nervous system (CNS), and its neural regeneration involves the replacement of cells lost to normal ‘wear and tear’ (cell turnover),Expand
