Riproduzione artificiale e svezzamento larvale del polpo (octopus vulgaris Cuvier, 1797) in ambiente controllato
L’interesse commerciale per lo sviluppo dell’allevamento del polpo (Octopus vulgaris Cuvier, 1797), nasce dal fatto che questo mollusco cefalopode ricopre un’importantissima nicchia nell’ambito del
Animal minds: The case for emotion, based on neuroscience
ABSTRACT Do non-human animals have minds? This scientific question, with important ethical implications, can be answered differently depending on the criteria used: in particular, whether we
Octopus Motor Control-Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Neuroscience
TLDR
Studies will be summarized to show that the amazing behavioral motor abilities of the octopus are achieved through a special embodied organization of its flexible body, unusual morpholo­ gy, and a unique central and peripheral distribution of its extremely large nervous system.
Intraspecific genetic variation for anesthesia success in a New Zealand freshwater snail
TLDR
It is demonstrated that genetic differences between snails are a major contributor to wide variation in menthol anesthesia success in an important freshwater snail model system, Potamopyrgus antipodarum.
What is in an octopus's mind?
TLDR
The actions of octopuses can be domain general, with flexible problem-solving strategies, enabling them to survive “by their wits” in a challenging and variable environment.
Cephalopod complex cognition
Prey Capture, Ingestion, and Digestion Dynamics of Octopus vulgaris Paralarvae Fed Live Zooplankton
TLDR
This study shows for the first time in a live cephalopod that octopus paralarvae attack, immobilize, drill, and ingest live cladocerans and copepods with 100% efficiency, which decreases dramatically to 60% on decapod prey (Pisidia longicornis).
The gyri of the octopus vertical lobe have distinct neurochemical identities
TLDR
The findings establish that the constituent lobes of the octopus superior frontal–vertical system have an intricate internal anatomy, one likely to reflect the presence of functional subsystems within cephalopod learning circuitry.
A SYNTHETIC APPROACH TO THE STUDY OF LEARNING AND MEMORY IN CHAMBERED nautiluS L . ( CEPHALOPODA , NAUTILOIDEA )
– We apply the synthetic approach to the study of learning in the ancient cephalopod nautilus pompilius, l. as a way of understanding how the complex brain and behaviors may have evolved in its more
