1. Conserved patterns of axogenesis in the panarthropod brain

    Arthropod Structure & Development 44(2):101 (2015)

    Neuropils in the cerebral midline of Panarthropoda exhibit a wide spectrum of neuroarchitectures – from rudimentary to highly elaborated – and which at first sight defy a unifying neuroarchitectural principle. Developmental approaches have shown that in model arthropods such as insects...

    Development Genes and Evolution 221(3):141 (2011) PMID 21556852

    In this study we employed the expression of the astrocyte-specific enzyme glutamine synthetase, in addition to the glia-specific marker Repo, to characterize glia cell types associated with the embryonic development of the central complex in the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria. Double labeling...
  8. Embryonic development of the insect central complex: insights from lineages in the grasshopper and Drosophila.

    Arthropod Structure & Development 40(4):334 (2011) PMID 21382507

    The neurons of the insect brain derive from neuroblasts which delaminate from the neuroectoderm at stereotypic locations during early embryogenesis. In both grasshopper and Drosophila, each developing neuroblast acquires an intrinsic capacity for neuronal proliferation in a cell autonomous manne...

  12. Developmental expression of neuromodulators in the central complex of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.

    Journal of Morphology 271(12):1509 (2010) PMID 20960464

    The central complex is a major integrative region within the insect brain with demonstrated roles in spatial orientation, the regulation of locomotor behavior, and sound production. In the hemimetabolous grasshopper, the central complex comprises the protocerebral bridge, central body (CB), elli...
  13. Proliferative cell types in embryonic lineages of the central complex of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.

    Cell and Tissue Research 341(2):259 (2010) PMID 20571828

    The central complex of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria develops to completion during embryogenesis. A major cellular contribution to the central complex is from the w, x, y, z lineages of the pars intercerebralis, each of which comprises over 100 cells, making them by far the largest in th...
  14. Cell death shapes embryonic lineages of the central complex in the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.

    Journal of Morphology 271(8):949 (2010) PMID 20623625

    We have investigated cell death in identified lineages of the central complex in the embryonic brain of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria. Progeny from these lineages lie in the pars intercerebralis and direct projections to the protocerebral bridge and then the central body via the w, x, y,...
  15. Multipotent neuroblasts generate a biochemical neuroarchitecture in the central complex of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.

    Cell and Tissue Research 340(1):13 (2010) PMID 20151154

    We have examined the developmental expression of the neuromodulators locustatachykinin, leucokinin-1, allatostatin and serotonin in a subset of lineages (Y, Z) of the central complex in the brain of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria. First, we show that all these neuromodulators are expresse...

    Journal of Medical Case Reports 4:413 (2010) PMID 21176188 PMCID PMC3022673

    Hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a rare malignancy arising from the vascular endothelial cells within the liver. Historically, the disease is characterized as being poorly responsive to both chemotherapy and radiotherapy, with liver resection or transplantation the treatment of choice...
