Visual learning performance of Drosophila melanogaster is altered by neuropharmaca affecting phosphodiesterase activity and acetylcholine transmission


, : Visual learning performance of Drosophila melanogaster is altered by neuropharmaca affecting phosphodiesterase activity and acetylcholine transmission. Journal of Insect Physiology, 3012: 957-965

Inhibitors of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases, theophylline and caffeine, decreased the visual learning performance of wild-type C-S individuals of Drosophila melanogaster.

Cyclic AMP is an intracellular mediator ('second messenger') in the nervous and endocrine control of cellular function, regulating different processes in different cell types. Although evidence is incomplete, it seems that cyclic AMP enh...

Visual learning in Drosophila populations is characterized by a fast rate of acquisition, and conditioning indices near 0.3 are obtained. Heterogeneity of the populations with respect to this behavior is small. Reversed conditioning is possible. P...
