Abstract

Lesion studies combined with immunocytochemical experiments were used to examine whether pigment-dispersing hormone-immunoreactive processes in the midbrain of crickets correlate with the presence of circadian activity. After interruption of both optic stalks in the crickets Teleogryllus commodus and Gryllus bimaculatus animals retained circadian rhythms in… (More)
