      Feliu-Mojer, Monica Ivelisse (2013-10-08)
      Coupling the small GTPase Rab3 to the Synaptic Vesicle Cycle
    • Regulation of Behavioral Arousal in C. elegans 

      Choi, Seungwon (2013-10-08)
      Animals undergo periods of behavioral quiescence and arousal in response to environmental, circadian, or developmental cues. During larval molts, C. elegans undergoes a period of profound behavioral quiescence termed ...
    • RIC-7 Promotes Neuropeptide Secretion 

      Hao, Yingsong; Hu, Zhitao; Sieburth, Derek; Kaplan, Joshua M. (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      Secretion of neurotransmitters and neuropeptides is mediated by exocytosis of distinct secretory organelles, synaptic vesicles (SVs) and dense core vesicles (DCVs) respectively. Relatively little is known about factors ...
    • Sensory Neurons Arouse C. elegans Locomotion via Both Glutamate and Neuropeptide Release 

      Choi, Seungwon; Taylor, Kelsey P.; Chatzigeorgiou, Marios; Hu, Zhitao; Schafer, William R.; Kaplan, Joshua M. (Public Library of Science, 2015)
      C. elegans undergoes periods of behavioral quiescence during larval molts (termed lethargus) and as adults. Little is known about the circuit mechanisms that establish these quiescent states. Lethargus and adult locomotion ...
    • Transcriptional Regulation of Synapse Remodeling in C. elegans 

      Thompson-Peer, Katherine Louise (2012-12-19)
      The ability of a neuron to alter its synaptic connections during development is essential to circuit assembly. Synapse remodeling or refinement has been observed in many species and many neuronal circuits, yet the mechanisms ...
