To explore the use of Caenorhabditis elegans and related nematodes for studying behavioral evolution, we conducted a comparative study of pharyngeal behaviors and neuronal regulation in free-living soil nematodes. The pharynx is divided into three parts: corpus, isthmus and terminal bulb, and pharyngeal behaviors consist of stereotyped patterns of two motions: pumping and peristalsis. Based on an outgroup species, Teratocephalus lirellus, the ancestral pattern of pharyngeal behaviors consisted… CONTINUE READING
