Neuromodulators and hormones elicit and modify well-defined behaviours. Their mode of action can be studied to advantage in arthropods, where the natural releasing cells and neuronal target circuits are concisely identified. The coordinated actions of biogenic amines and peptides on both central and peripheral neural activity and metabolic processes bias the whole organism to perform a coherent behavioural routine. 
Biochemistry and molecular biology of receptors for biogenic amines in locusts
  • T. Roeder
  • Biology, Chemistry
    Microscopy research and technique
  • 2002
TLDR
The biochemistry and molecular biology of biogenic amines and their metabotropic receptors in insects, with a focus on locusts, is reviewed and their pharmacological features and the molecular properties are described in detail.
The functional role of octopaminergic neurons in insect motor behavior.
TLDR
The role of efferent, octopaminergic dorsal unpaired median (DUM) neurons in insects is examined by recording from them during motor behaviour, and their modulatory effects on synaptic transmission may also cause metabolic changes in their target tissues.
Aminergic control and modulation of honeybee behaviour.
TLDR
The present knowledge on how biogenic amines and their receptor-mediated cellular responses modulate different behaviours of honeybees including learning processes and division of labour is discussed.
Latent inhibition in an insect: the role of aminergic signaling.
TLDR
Evidence that serotonin would participate in the regulation of LI in honeybees is provided, after differential olfactory conditioning of the proboscis extension response in the honeybee Apis mellifera.
Monoamines and the Orchestration of Behavior
TLDR
In this overview, the concept of chemical orchestration of behavior is illustrated, using well-studied models of how monoamines modulate complex and long-lasting behaviors in invertebrate animals.
Neuromodulatory control of rhythmic behaviors in invertebrates.
Melatonin and Serotonin: Their Synthesis and Effects in Insects
TLDR
In insects, serotonin and melatonin function as neurotransmitters, hormones, and bioregulators, controlling a wide range of endocrines, behavioral, immunological, developmental, and defensive activities, as well as biological cycles.
Biogenic amines in the brain of the honeybee: Cellular distribution, development, and behavioral functions
  • G. Bicker

  • 1999
TLDR
This review provides a summary of the cellular distribution of amine‐containing neurons and the organization of aminergic pathways in the brain and suboesophageal ganglion of the honeybee and resolves at a single cell level the neural pathways that mediate adaptive behavioral changes.

Are Skeletal Motoneurons in Arthropods Peptidergic
TLDR
The role of neuropeptides as possible muscle effectors in arthropods is considered in this chapter.
Activation of Neuronal Circuits by Circulating Hormones in Insects
TLDR
It has been shown that other coordinated behaviors such as those involved in hunger, thirst, aggression, and so forth are all called forth to a greater or lesser extent by their own specific circulating chemicals.
Neurobiological bases of rhythmic motor acts in vertebrates.
TLDR
The hypothesis that different parts of the network controlling locomotion can be used in a variety of other motor acts, including learned ones, is reviewed.
Modulation of Synaptic Transmission and Plasticity in Nervous Systems
TLDR
In recent years the study of learning and memory proceeded to an analysis on the cellular and molecular level, and different approaches to elucidate the basic elements of the molecular mechanisms seem to converge to a unifying picture.
Extrinsic modulation of crayfish escape behaviour.
TLDR
Extrinsic systems were shown to control the excitability of the neurones which mediate tail-flip escape in the crayfish, and inhibition may serve to shift the control of escape behaviour to more flexible 'voluntary' ones which can produce responses at times most opportune for successful escape.
Neuropeptide proctolin associated with an identified skeletal motoneuron

  • 1982
TLDR
A large proctolin-containing motoneuron is identified which innervates muscles in a proximal segment of the cockroach leg and establishes a well characterized cellular preparation in which the physiological actions and functions of a peptide-containing neuron can be studied in vivo.
Neuropharmacology of Learning and Memory in Honey Bees
TLDR
It is concluded that the mushroom bodies are the neuropiles in which the antagonistic effects of octopamine and 5-HT act on olfactory memory.
Serotonin neurotransmission and behavior
TLDR
This book encompasses serotonin neurotransmission both in the peripheral autonomic nervous system and in the central nervous system, and indeed one of its main lines of inquiry is whether such neurotransmission in the higher-order neuronal systems represents a morphologically new type of synaptic relation--one lacking the classical pre- and post-synaptic elements and analogous to that found in the periphery autonomic system.

TLDR
It is reported that these cells can be identified reliably in living preparations; they have large fields of innervation projecting anteriorly into at least 4 segmental ganglia; these neurons are the origin of the fibers that form the thoracic second root neurosecretory regions.
