Locomotor activity rhythms of the cockroach Leucophaea maderae are orchestrated by two bilaterally symmetric, mutually coupled, circadian pacemakers. They lie in the optic lobes of the brain and are confined to the accessory medulla (AMe), ventro-medially to the medulla. The AMe is innervated by approximately 12 pigment-dispersing hormone (PDH)-immunoreactive anterior medulla neurons (PDHMe), which are circadian pacemaker candidates in the fruitfly and the cockroach. We have developed a three… CONTINUE READING
