Summary:
The central nervous system represents the organ with the highest structural and functional complexity. Uncovering the mechanisms leading to cell diversity, patterning and connectivity in the CNS is one of the major challenges in developmental biology. This book provides an overview of some major facets of research on Drosophila brain development.
Contents:
The development of the Drosophila larval brain
Anteroposterior regionalization of the brain: genetic and comparative aspects
Dorsoventral patterning of the brain: a comparative approach
Dissection of the embryonic brain using photoactivated gene expression
Design of the larval chemosensory system
Development of the Drosophila olfactory system
The olfactory sensory map in Drosophila
Optic lobe development
Clonal unit architecture of the adult fly brain.
