In terrestrial gastropod mollusks (slugs and snails), olfaction is the dominant sensory modality guiding various kinds of behavior. Anatomical studies indicate that olfactory information is processed in the brain (the cerebral ganglion) in two lobes in particular: the procerebrum (PC) and the metacerebrum (MtC). This implies that olfactory functions emerge(More)
Rice internodes must have the proper shape to support high-yielding panicles. The shape of internodes is controlled by various factors involved in their formation, such as developmental patterns, cell division, cell elongation, and cell wall biosynthesis. To understand the regulation of internode development, we screened dwarf mutants to identify those with(More)
Olfactory information flows within the terrestrial slug's brain are presented. Because brain functions emerge from simultaneous and cooperative information processing in various brain regions, such information flows are important to understand mechanisms for communication among the neurons in brain. Three aspects concerning the information flows for(More)
