Cephalopods have the most advanced nervous systems and intelligent behavior among all invertebrates. [...] Key Method Here, we obtained sagittal and coronal sections covering the entire brain of adult Octopus minor (Sasaki), which belongs to the genus with the most species in the class Cephalopoda and is commercially available in East Asia throughout the year. Sections were stained using Hematoxylin and Eosin (H&E) to visualize the cellular nuclei and subregions.Expand
Identification of neural progenitor cells and their progeny reveals long distance migration in the developing octopus brain
TLDR
The finding that octopus newborn neurons migrate over long distances is reminiscent of vertebrate neurogenesis and suggests it might be a fundamental strategy for large brain development. Expand

Octopus: Multiple minds or just a slow thinker?
An octopus has more neurons in their peripheral nervous system (PNS) than in their brain. PNS neurons could participate in forming cognitive networks with the central brain in the same way that theExpand
Distribution of Cadherin in the Parahippocampal Area of Developing Domestic Chicken Embryos
TLDR
The expression of cadherin mRNA in chicken and mouse brains is examined to investigate the morphological and cytoarchitectural bases of hippocampal formation and indicates that some cadherins can be used as special markers of the avian hippocampusal formation. Expand
Mobilizing molluscan models and genomes in biology
TLDR
It is argued that a cohesive research community that works together to elevate multiple molluscan systems to ‘model’ status will create new opportunities in addressing basic and applied biological problems, including general features of animal evolution. Expand

The Octopus: A Model for a Comparative Analysis of the Evolution of Learning and Memory Mechanisms
TLDR
The emerging results suggest that a convergent evolutionary process has led to the selection of vertebrate-like neural organization and activity-dependent long-term synaptic plasticity in octopuses and vertebrates, and suggests the importance of the shared properties for the mediation of learning and memory.

Atlas of the Embryonic Brain in the Pygmy Squid, Idiosepius paradoxus
TLDR
Comparison of the present results with those in the teuthoid and the octopod indicates that developmental sequences of the brain are highly conserved in the coleoid cephalopods. Expand
Pygmy squids and giant brains: Mapping the complex cephalopod CNS by phalloidin staining of vibratome sections and whole-mount preparations
TLDR
Fluorescence-coupled phalloidin constitutes an excellent neuropil marker for the complex cephalopod CNS and facilitates high-resolution in toto reconstructions of the CNS and contributes to a better understanding of the organization of neural networks. Expand
Three‐dimensional brain atlas of pygmy squid, Idiosepius paradoxus, revealing the largest relative vertical lobe system volume among the cephalopods
TLDR
The pygmy squid can be a good model to investigate the brain functions of coleoids utilizing physiological methods and principal component analyses of relative volumes of lobe complexes revealed that the organization of I. paradoxus brain is comparable to those of Decapodiformes species commonly used to analyze complex behaviors. Expand
Development of the Brain in the Oegopsid Squid, Todarodes pacificus: An Atlas Up to the Hatching Stage
TLDR
The similarity of the embryonic brain in Todarodes to the adult brain in Nautilus suggests that the coleoid brain has evolved on the basic plan as seen in the nautiloid brain. Expand
Analysis of neurotransmitter distribution in brain development of benthic and pelagic octopod cephalopods
TLDR
The ontogeny of serotonergic and FMRFamide‐like immunoreactive neurons in the central nervous system of the benthic Octopus vulgaris and Fa‐lir distribution in the pelagic Argonauta hians is described and neuronal subsets with similar cell number and immunochemical phenotype in coleoids are identified.

Organization of the nervous system in the pygmy cuttlefish, Idiosepius paradoxus ortmann (Idiosepiidae, cephalopoda)
TLDR
Three‐dimensional images by whole‐mount immunostaining clarified the innervation pattern in the peripheral nervous system in detail and seemed to reflect the inactive nekto‐benthic life of the idiosepiid cuttlefish in the eelgrass bed. Expand
Development of the Brain in the Oegopsid Squid, Todarodes pacificus: An Atlas from Hatchling to Juvenile
TLDR
The retarded development of higher motor centers during paralarval development suggests that the earlyParalarvae of T. pacificus are not active predators but suspension feeders. Expand
The Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates
TLDR
The 3rd edition of this atlas is now in more practical 14"x11" format for convenient lab use and includes a CD of all plates and diagrams, as well as Adobe Illustrator files of the diagrams, and a variety of additional useful material. Expand
Systematics and Biogeography of Cephalopods. Volume II
TLDR
It is clarified that two well-known nominal species, Onychoteuthis banksii and Ancistroteuthis lichtensteinii (Ferussac and Orbigny, 1839) both represent species complexes in their broad distributional ranges. Expand
