Connectomics has focused primarily on the mapping of synaptic links in the brain; yet it is well established that extrasynaptic volume transmission, especially via monoamines and neuropeptides, is also critical to brain function and occurs primarily outside the synaptic connectome. We have mapped the putative monoamine connections, as well as a subset of(More)
Recent studies on the controllability of complex systems offer a powerful mathematical framework to systematically explore the structure-function relationship in biological, social, and technological networks. Despite theoretical advances, we lack direct experimental proof of the validity of these widely used control principles. Here we fill this gap by(More)
Lesioning studies have provided important insight into the functions of brain regions in humans and other animals. In the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, with a small nervous system of 302 identified neurons, it is possible to generate lesions with single cell resolution and infer the roles of individual neurons in behaviour. Here we present a dataset of(More)
To maintain protein homoeostasis, animals have developed stress response pathways such as the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS). Joshi and colleagues have demonstrated that in Caenorhabditis elegans, dopamine release from neurons acts on receptors in the epithelia to modulate protein turnover, by controlling the expression of regulators of the xenobiotic(More)
