Mushroom body influence on locomotor activity and circadian rhythms in Drosophila melanogaster.


Whether or not mechanisms underlying circadian locomotor rhythms and learning are related anatomically through the mushroom bodies (MBs) was investigated by monitoring behavioral rhythmicity in flies with MB lesions induced by chemical ablation and by mutations in five different genes. All flies tested were later examined histologically to assess (1) MB… (More)
