The neuropeptidergic connectome of C. elegans

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

An amazing graph theoretic analysis of the C. elegans neuropeptide connectome!

Neuromodulation by peptides is essential for brain function. By comprehensively mapping neuropeptide signaling in the nematode C. elegans, Ripoll-Sánchez et al. define a dense wireless network whose organization differs in important ways from wired brain circuits. This network is a prototype for understanding neuropeptide signaling networks in larger brains.
