With an emphasis on evolutionary aspects of neurobiology in model and non-model invertebrates, this forward-looking volume includes chapters on eye evolution, higher cognitive functions in insects, circadian rhythms and sleep, behavioral genetics, visual ecology, acoustic communication, and the evolution of excitability. Its coverage includes emerging techniques that allow the manipulation of activity in specified neurons and the investigation of behavior. Each chapter incorporates the key findings on the subject, but also identifies and examines the important questions that are still outstanding.
This volume, which commences and concludes with a comparison of vertebrate and invertebrate nervous systems, will not only inspire graduate students and post-docs, but also provide an entry into this exciting and productive field for established investigators.
