Plasticity in motorneurons necessary for operant self-learning (PDF)
Inhibiting the enzyme Protein Kinase C specifically in motorneurons prevents a form of motor learning, operant self learning.
Common laboratory strains differ in behavior and genomes (PDF1, PDF2)
All laboratories keep reference wild type strains. Over time, each such strain evolves, until the strains differ in their genomes and behavior - despite keeping the same name in the literature.
A root of language in fruit flies (PDF)
The human language-related FOXP2 gene and its orthologue in flies, dFoxP, share their function in a specific form of motor learning, operant self-learning.
Open Science: Buridan's Paradigm (PDF, companion PDF)
