Cellular site and molecular mode of synapsin action in associative learning.
Synapsin is an evolutionarily conserved, presynaptic vesicular phosphoprotein. Here, we ask where and how synapsin functions in associative behavioral plasticity. Upon loss or reduction of synapsinExpand

Functional architecture of reward learning in mushroom body extrinsic neurons of larval Drosophila
The brain adaptively integrates present sensory input, past experience, and options for future action. The insect mushroom body exemplifies how a central brain structure brings about suchExpand

A Behavioral Odor Similarity “Space” in Larval Drosophila
To provide a behavior-based estimate of odor similarity in larval Drosophila, we use 4 recognition-type experiments: 1) We train larvae to associate an odor with food and then test whether they wouldExpand

Synapsin is required to "boost" memory strength for highly salient events.
Synapsin is an evolutionarily conserved presynaptic phosphoprotein. It is encoded by only one gene in the Drosophila genome and is expressed throughout the nervous system. It regulates the balanceExpand

Altered expression of the microRNAS and their potential target genes in the soleus muscle after peripheral denervation and reinnervation in rats.
BACKGROUND To profile the expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) and their potential target genes in the soleus muscles after denervation and reinnervation of the sciatic nerve in rats. MATERIALS ANDExpand

The Ol1mpiad: concordance of behavioural faculties of stage 1 and stage 3 Drosophila larvae
ABSTRACT Mapping brain function to brain structure is a fundamental task for neuroscience. For such an endeavour, the Drosophila larva is simple enough to be tractable, yet complex enough to beExpand

Olfactory memories are intensity specific in larval Drosophila
SUMMARY Learning can rely on stimulus quality, stimulus intensity, or a combination of these. Regarding olfaction, the coding of odour quality is often proposed to be combinatorial along theExpand

Generalization and discrimination tasks yield concordant measures of perceived distance between odours and their binary mixtures in larval Drosophila
Similarity between odours is notoriously difficult to measure. Widely used behavioural approaches in insect olfaction research are cross-adaptation, masking, as well as associative tasks based onExpand

Delay in a bargaining game with contracts
In a multilateral bargaining game where a proposer and responders can set up a “principal–agent” relationship by means of binding cash-offer contracts, we show that there is a Markov SPE with a delayExpand
