Mushroom bodies (MBs), which are higher centers in the insect brain, are implicated in associative memory and in the control of some behaviors. Intrinsic neurons of the MB, called Kenyon cells, receive synaptic inputs from axon terminals of input neurons in the calyx. Axons of Kenyon cells project into the pedunculus and to the alpha and beta lobes, where they make synaptic connections with dendrites of extrinsic (output) neurons. In this study, we examined the morphology of Kenyon cells in the… CONTINUE READING
