Advances of Physiological Sciences, Volume 23: Neurobiology of Invertebrates: Mechanisms of Integration covers the proceedings of the satellite symposium held in conjunction with the 28th International Congress of Physiological Sciences. This text is comprised of 31 chapters and discuses several topics relevant in understanding the neurobiological nature of invertebrates. Topics include cellular mechanisms and neural network of circadian clock in the eye of Aplysia and electrical activity and hormonal output of ovulation hormone producing neuroendocrine cells in Lymnaea stagnalis (Gastropoda). Properties of postsynaptic potentials in the bimodal pacemaker neuron of Helix pomatia L. are also discussed. This book will be of great interest to researchers whose work concerns the neurobiological functions of invertebrates.
