CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Development of the brain and behaviour.

The basic structure of the bird brain is shared with other vertebrates and is formed from five divisions. The spinal cord ascends to the hindbrain (myelencephalon and metencephalon), the midbrain (mesencephalon) and the forebrain (diencephalon and telencephalon). Every sensory system except for the ...

Abstract

Rationale and objectives: The effects of low thyroid hormone level during embryogenesis on MRI of the brain and social behaviors of hatchlings were examined using "fertilized hen's egg-embryo-chick" system. Methods and results: Control and hatchlings treated with methimazole (20 µmol/egg), which...

Abstract

Socialisation is a unique learning process that enables young animals to better adapt to their future adult social habitat. Behind this apparent behavioural process is a neurologic structuration of the brain and enhancement of the mind.

Abstract

This paper aims at the presentation of the complex role of oxytocin, hypothalamic hormone stored in and released from the posterior pituitary. Secreted by magnocellular and parvocellular neurohypophysis neurons, oxytocin nonapeptide is found exclusively in mammals. It was long time considered as a...

Abstract

Division of labor is a hallmark of social insects. In honey bees, division of labor involves transition of female workers from one task to the next. The most distinct tasks are nursing (providing food for the brood) and foraging (collecting pollen and nectar). The brain mechanisms regulating this...

Abstract

Prolonged consumption of ketogenic diets (KD) has reported neuroprotective benefits. Several studies suggest KD interventions could be useful in the management of neurological and developmental disorders. Alterations in the Engrailed (En) genes, specifically Engrailed 2 (En2), have...

Abstract

Left-right asymmetries in behavior associated with asymmetries in the brain are widespread in the animal kingdom [1], and the hypothesis has been put forward that they may be linked to animals social behavior [2,3]. Dogs show asymmetric tail-wagging responses to different emotive stimuli [4] - the...

Abstract

In natural spawning grounds, breeding round goby, Neogobius melanostomus, males are exposed to various social stimuli, including high density of same-sex competitors and separation from females. We hypothesize that breeding males subjected to overcrowding in the wild experience high stress that...

Abstract

Few studies have evaluated the long-term effects of providing environmental resources to mice. This consideration is important given that mice are often maintained in vivaria for months. We evaluated the effects of providing simple cage resources (wood wool, cotton nesting material, a plastic...

Abstract

The biological actions of growth hormone (GH) are pleiotropic, including growth promotion, energy mobilization, gonadal development, appetite, and social behavior. The regulatory network for GH is complex and includes many central and peripheral endocrine factors as well as that from the...
