The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans stops feeding and moving during a larval transition stage called lethargus and following… Expand OBJECTIVES
Cross-species conservation of sleep-like behaviors predicts the presence of conserved molecular mechanisms underlying… Expand STUDY OBJECTIVES
The nematode C. elegans develops through four larval stages before it reaches adulthood. At the transition… Expand Animals undergo periods of behavioral quiescence and arousal in response to environmental, circadian, or developmental cues… Expand BACKGROUND
Sleep is an essential behavior that is found in all animals that have a nervous system. Neural activity is thought to… Expand Sleep-like states are characterized by massively reduced behavioral activity. Little is known about genetic control of sleep-like… Expand Sleep homeostasis, which refers to the maintenance of sleep amount or depth following sleep deprivation, indicates that sleep and… Expand Neuropeptides play central roles in the regulation of homeostatic behaviors such as sleep and feeding. Caenorhabditis elegans… Expand Sleep is characterized by reduced muscle activity resulting in reduced movement and a typical posture compatible with relaxed… Expand There are fundamental similarities between sleep in mammals and quiescence in the arthropod Drosophila melanogaster, suggesting… Expand
