Synaptic organization of the mushroom body calyx in Drosophila melanogaster
The Cholinergic boutons are the largest identified cholinergic synapses in the Drosophila brain and an eligible prospect for studying the genetic regulation of excitatory presynaptic function.
F‐actin at identified synapses in the mushroom body neuropil of the insect brain
Focal accumulation of f‐actin in the dendritic tips of KCs was found to be a general feature of MG, with either spheroidal or indented boutons of different sizes, as encountered in the mushroom bodies of the cricket, honey bee, ant, and fruit fly.
Common and special features of the nervous system of Onychophora: A comparison with Arthropoda, Annelida and some other invertebrates
The preponderance of globuli cells in the brain and ventral nerve cord, the synaptic neuropils and tracts, and the nerve-muscle synapse belong to the characters of the onychophoran nervous system.
Aggregation of f-actin in olfactory glomeruli: a common feature of glomeruli across phyla.
This comparative study demonstrates that aggregation of F-actin is a common feature of glomeruli across phyla, and is independent ofglomerular architecture and/or the presence or absence of cellular borders around glomersuli formed by neurons or glial cells.
Serotonin‐immunoreactive neurons in the brain of the honeybee
The immunohistochemical approach in chemoneuroanatomy gives new evidence for a more complicated architecture of the brain than could be deduced from the classical neuroanatomical studies.
Glutamate‐like immunoreactivity marks compartments of the mushroom bodies in the brain of the cricket
Differences in glutamate‐like immunostaining in Kenyon cell subpopulations, together with differences in their arborization and axonal projection patterns, indicate a functional diversity of these neurons.
Types, numbers and distribution of synapses on the dendritic tree of an identified visual interneuron in the brain of the locust
The descending contralateral movement detector (DCMD), an identified descending interneuron in the brain of the locust Schistocerca gregaria has been investigated by using light and electron microscopy and may receive a considerable amount of input from as yet unidentified neurons.
Octopamine-immunoreactive neurons in the central nervous system of the cricket, Gryllus bimaculatus
The distribution of octopamine-immunoreactive neurons is described using whole-mount preparations of all central ganglia of the cricket, Gryllus bimaculatus to discuss possible neurohemal releasing sites forOctopamine.
Dopamine-like immunoreactivity in the bee brain
SummaryThe distribution of dopamine-like immunoreactive neurons is described for the brain of the bee, Apis mellifera L., following the application of a pre-embedding technique on Vibratome sections.
