Development of the larval anterior neurogenic domains of Terebratalia transversa (Brachiopoda) provides insights into the diversification of larval apical organs and the spiralian nervous system
(BioMed Central, 2012-01-24)
Background: Larval features such as the apical organ, apical ciliary tuft, and ciliated bands often complicate the evaluation of hypotheses regarding the origin of the adult bilaterian nervous system. Understanding how ...
Owenia fusiformis – a basally branching annelid suitable for studying ancestral features of annelid neural development
(BioMed Central, 2016-06-16)
Background Comparative investigations on bilaterian neurogenesis shed light on conserved developmental mechanisms across taxa. With respect to annelids, most studies focus on taxa deeply nested within the annelid tree, ...
Morphological investigations of posttraumatic regeneration in Timarete cf. punctata (Annelida: Cirratulidae)
(BioMed Central, 2015-08-06)
Introduction: Annelids exhibit great regenerative abilities, which are mainly used after injury or during reproduction. These lophotrochozoans thus represent excellent models for regeneration research. However, detailed ...
Molecular regionalization in the compact brain of the meiofaunal annelid Dinophilus gyrociliatus (Dinophilidae)
(BioMed Central, 2016-08-30)
Background: Annelida is a morphologically diverse animal group that exhibits a remarkable variety in nervous system architecture (e.g., number and location of longitudinal cords, architecture of the brain). Despite this ...
