Guidelines for the Care and Welfare of Cephalopods in Research –A consensus based on an initiative by CephRes, FELASA and the Boyd Group
TLDR
This paper is the result of an international initiative and is a first attempt to develop guidelines for the care and welfare of cephalopods following the inclusion of this Class of ∼700 known living invertebrate species in Directive 2010/63/EU. Expand
Cephalopods in neuroscience: regulations, research and the 3Rs
TLDR
The approaches being taken by the cephalopod research community to produce “guidelines” are described and the potential contribution of neuroscience research to cepHalopod welfare is described. Expand
Effects of perinatal exposure to waterborne fluoxetine on memory processing in the cuttlefish Sepia officinalis.
TLDR
The results suggested that FLX-induced changes in cognitive capacities could potentially lead to inappropriate predatory behaviors in the natural environment and provides the basis for future studies on how pharmaceutical contaminants disrupt cognition in ecologically and economically relevant marine invertebrates. Expand
Postembryonic Maturation of the Vertical Lobe Complex and Early Development of Predatory Behavior in the Cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis)
TLDR
To maintain a prey in the frontal visual field during predatory pursuit, short-term memory processes must be involved, and the development of the vertical-subvertical lobe tracts appears essential in the maturation of these short- term memory processes. Expand
The effect of early experience on learning and memory in cuttlefish.
TLDR
Retention performances of cuttlefish from Groups I/EC and E/IC indicated that the environment of rearing during the 2nd and/or 3rd months of life was crucial for the development of memory. Expand
Orientation in the cuttlefish Sepia officinalis: response versus place learning
TLDR
This study demonstrates for the first time the presence of multiple spatial strategies in cuttlefish that appear to closely parallel those described in vertebrates. Expand
Evidence for a specific short-term memory in the cuttlefish, Sepia
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the control situation failed to reduce the level of attack; in contrast the short-term retention, obtained after a single learning trial, is related to a specific short- term memory process. Expand
Feel, smell and see in an egg: emergence of perception and learning in an immature invertebrate, the cuttlefish embryo
TLDR
This study is the first to show that cuttlefish embryos behaviorally respond to stimuli of different modalities and that the visual system is the last to become functional during embryonic development, as in vertebrate embryos. Expand
Early experience and postembryonic maturation of body patterns in cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis).
TLDR
It appears that the response to the background is subject to individual experience, and some hypotheses are discussed relating to the effect of early experience on the maturation of body patterns. Expand
Embryonic visual learning in the cuttlefish, Sepia officinalis
TLDR
Cuttlefish embryos exposed to crabs for at least a week before hatching induced a subsequent visual preference for crabs in 7-day-old juveniles, showing for the first time embryonic visual learning in animals. Expand
