Borkovec and Masler's timely new volume-Insect Neurochemistry and Neurophysiology a 1989-provides a wide-ranging survey of forefront research in every key area of insect neuroscience by contributors who are internationally renowned authorities in their fields.
Divided into three main sections- Neuroanatomy, Neurochemistry, and Neurophysiology, this vanguard collection of original research papers and reviews presented here cover a broad spectrum of topics, including: a neuropeptides a neurodevelopment a neuroendocrinology a blood-brain barrier a eclosion hormone gene a neuroparsins a hypertrehalosemic hormone a oostatic hormone a sex pheromone biosynthesis a corpora allata activity a ecdysiotropins a protein kinase C a ecdysteroid production a precocene II a hypolipemic hormone a neuroanatomy a serotonergic modulation a neurosecretory cells a octopaminergic modulationa tyramine-b-hydroxylase a metabolism of inositol phosphates a genetically engineered baculovirus pesticides a juvenile hormone production a endocrinology of embyrogenesis a molt inhibition by azadirachtin a prothoracicotropic hormone a metabolic changes in nerve tissue a regulation of vitellogenesis a uptake and binding of ponasterone A a gene expression during pupal-adult neurogenesis a chemical regulators of female reproductive muscle function a proctolin and female reproductive tissue immunochemistry.
Insect Neurochemistry and Neurophysiology a 1989 is an indispensable resource and reference for all workers in the neurosciences, entomology, pesticide research, and related areas.
