Electrophysiological analysis of cultured neurons provides a potential approach toward understanding the physiological defects that may contribute to abnormal behavior exhibited by mutants of the fruit fly Drosophila. However, its application has been restricted by an inability to identify a particular functional or anatomical subpopulation of neurons from the CNS. To study neurons composing the CNS mushroom body proposed as a center for insect olfactory learning, we utilized a Drosophila enhancer detector line that expresses a lacZ reporter gene in these neurons and identified them in acutely dissociated larval CNS cultures by vital fluorescent staining. The patch-clamp analysis suggests that whole-cell voltage-activated K+ currents can be classified into two types in identified mushroom body neurons. Type 1 current comprises a TEA-sensitive slowly inactivating current and noninactivating component while type 2 current contains a 4-AP-sensitive transient A-current and a noninactivating ...
Genetic intervention in the fly Drosophila melanogaster has provided strong evidence that the mushroom bodies of the insect brain act as the seat of a memory trace for odours. This localization gives the mushroom bodies a place in a network model of olfactory memory that is based on the functional anatomy of the olfactory system. In the model, complex odour mixtures are assumed to be represented by activated sets of intrinsic mushroom body neurons. Conditioning renders an extrinsic mushroom-body output neuron specifically responsive to such a set. Mushroom bodies have a second, less understood function in the organization of the motor output. The development of a circuit model that also addresses this function might allow the mushroom bodies to throw light on the basic operating principles of the brain.

The outgrowth of many neurons within the central nervous system is initially directed towards or away from the cells lying at the midline. Recent genetic evidence suggests that a simple model of differential sensitivity to the conserved Netrin attractants and Slit repellents is not sufficient to explain the guidance of all axons at the midline. In the Drosophila embryonic ventral nerve cord, many axons still cross the midline in the absence of the Netrin genes or their receptor frazzled. Here we show that mutation of mushroom body defect (mud) dramatically enhances the phenotype of Netrin or frazzled mutants, resulting in many more axons failing to cross the midline, though mutations in mud alone have little effect. This suggests that mud, which encodes a microtubule-binding coiled-coil protein homologous to NuMA and Lin-5, is an essential component of a Netrin-independent pathway that acts in parallel to promote midline crossing. We demonstrate that this novel role in axon guidance is ...
Further evidence comes from studies in Drosophila, showing that the degeneration of axons occurring during pruning requires the UPS (Watts et al., 2003). Axon pruning is an important process for the refinement of the neuronal connections in both vertebrates and invertebrates. Studying development of particular projecting neurons of the Drosophila mushroom bodies it was shown that overexpression of an ubiquitin protease or a mutant form of the Drosophila E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme, inhibited pruning (Watts et al., 2003). Likewise, mutations in two of the subunits in the 19S regulatory particle (Fig. 1 A) also impaired pruning. This genetic evidence strongly suggests that local degeneration of protein via the UPS activity is a necessary requirement for axon pruning during development of the mushroom bodies. The relevance of these findings for Wallerian degeneration and axonal reactions in neurodegenerative diseases is not straightforward. However, there are similarities between these processes ...
Altered function of Cdk5 kinase is associated with many forms of neurodegenerative disease in humans. We show here that inactivating the Drosophila Cdk5 ortholog, by mutation of its activating subunit, p35, causes adult-onset neurodegeneration in the fly. In the mutants, a vacuolar neuropathology is observed in a specific structure of the central brain, the mushroom body, which is the seat of olfactory learning and memory. Analysis of cellular phenotypes in the mutant brains reveals some phenotypes that resemble natural aging in control flies, including an increase in apoptotic and necrotic cell death, axonal fragmentation, and accumulation of autophagosomes packed with crystalline-like depositions. Other phenotypes are unique to the mutants, notably age-dependent swellings of the proximal axon of mushroom body neurons. Many of these phenotypes are also characteristic of mammalian neurodegenerative disease, suggesting a close relationship between the mechanisms of Cdk5-associated ...

Dr Dubnau then moved on to the topic of fruit fly neurology, and his specialty, the study of neurological degenerative diseases. Structures in the fruit fly brain, the mushroom bodies are connected to olfactory learning and memory. Dr Dubnau showed us a video of flies which had been subjected to a mild electric shock while being exposed to a particular fragrance. They learned to associate the fragrance with the shock, so continued exposure to that fragrance would cause them to behave so that they would avoid an expected shock. The flies are then put in a T-maze and subjected to different odors... heres a video featuring Dr Dubnau, explaining this experiment ...
In Drosophila, the cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) pathway has been shown to be crucial for learning and memory, but whether this represents a developmental or a specific effect has not been resolved. Research with a new targeting system that allows both spatial and temporal control of gene expression shows that expression of rutabaga-encoded adenylyl cyclase, a component of the cAMP signaling pathway, in the mushroom bodies of adult flies is necessary and sufficient to rescue the learning.

It is well established that the hippocampus is central for learning and memory, encoding mnemonic data about past experiences and connections.
Learning describes the ability to change behavior based on experience. A memory is the stored form of those changes. Rather few molecules are known to be critical for memory formation. Even less is known about the relationship between those molecules and their temporal requirement through development. The rutabaga encoded type 1 adenylyl cyclase (rut-AC) is critical for both synaptic plasticity and memory formation in a number of species. Indeed, it has been proposed to be a molecular integratorí, responding synergistically to signals mediating the cue that is to be learned and the reinforcer. The rut-AC, thus, plays a central role in memory formation. In the Drosophila adult, the rut-AC has been found critical for every learning experiment in which it has been tested. And, the cellular site of action for the rut-AC has been determined for two learning paradigms. For learning olfactory cues, the rut-AC function is sufficient for memory formation in the Kenyon cells of the mushroom bodies. ...
The recent ID propoganda piece Unlocking the Mysteries of Life tells the story this way: in 1975, Kenyon was faced with a dilemma. His theory of a primordial protein world, if true, would not account for how protein sequence information could have ended up in an unrelated molecule, i.e., in DNA. Kenyon realized that his theory was fatally flawed. His response to this realization? To decide that ID did it, and to literally give up on the project. On all projects, in fact.

PNAS, 22 February, 2019, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1812342116. Suppression of GABAergic neurons through D2-like receptor secures efficient conditioning in Drosophila aversive olfactory learning. Mingmin Zhou, Nannan Chen, Jingsong Tian, Jianzhi Zeng, Yunpeng Zhang, Xiaofan Zhang, Jing Guo, Jinghan Sun, Yulong Li, Aike Guo, and Yan Li. Abstract. The GABAergic system serves as a vital negative modulator in cognitive functions, such as learning and memory, while the mechanisms governing this inhibitory system remain to be elucidated. In Drosophila, the GABAergic anterior paired lateral (APL) neurons mediate a negative feedback essential for odor discrimination; however, their activity is suppressed by learning via unknown mechanisms. In aversive olfactory learning, a group of dopaminergic (DA) neurons is activated on electric shock (ES) and modulates the Kenyon cells (KCs) in the mushroom body, the center of olfactory learning. Here we find that the same group of DA neurons also form ...
Appendices 1 - 6 from Experience-dependent mushroom body plasticity in butterflies: consequences of search complexity and host range
For aversive olfactory memory in Drosophila, multiple components have been identified that exhibit different stabilities. These components have been defined by behavioral and genetic studies, and genes specifically required for a specific component have also been identified. Intermediate-term memory generated after single cycle conditioning is divided into anesthesia-sensitive memory (ASM) and anesthesia-resistant memory (ARM), with the latter being more stable. We determined that the ASM and ARM pathways converged on the Rgk1 small GTPase and that the N-terminal domain-deleted Rgk1 was sufficient for ASM formation, whereas the full-length form was required for ARM formation. Rgk1 is specifically accumulated at the synaptic site of the Kenyon cells (KCs), the intrinsic neurons of the mushroom bodies (MBs), which play a pivotal role in olfactory memory formation. A higher than normal Rgk1 level enhanced memory retention, which is consistent with the result that Rgk1 suppressed Rac-dependent ...

Using a technique known as immunohistochemistry, Wolff and Strausfeld first prepared very thin sections of mantis shrimp brain tissue and applied antibodies that specifically detect certain proteins known to play important roles in learning and memory. Because these antibodies are coupled to fluorescent markers, researchers can trace the exact locations of these proteins as they outline the anatomical architecture of the nervous system. When we study the sections stained for learning and memory proteins under the microscope, the characteristic mushroom body lobes that typify insect mushroom bodies light up very intensively, Strausfeld says. The team is confident that the structures it identified are indeed mushroom bodies. Whereas in the past just three neuroanatomical characters were routinely used to identify these hallmark structures in insect brains, the team expanded this suite of characters to 14 and, according to Strausfeld, to our delight, as do insects, mantis shrimp reveal every one ...
Odors evoke consistent patterns of sparse activity in the mushroom body of the fruit fly brain. Each row shows a single flys responses to three different presentations of the same odor. Sparse pattern of responding neurons is similar for a single odor within an individual, but varies randomly in different individuals. Fruit flies are separated by a great evolutionary distance from mammals, of course, but are extremely useful in neuroscience research because of the phenomenon of evolutionary conservation: natures preservation of certain genetic and metabolic pathways across eons and widely separated species, owing to their extraordinary utility. The mechanisms of memory, of obvious survival advantage, are among the most highly conserved bits of ancient biology.. Turner and his CSHL colleagues were able to simultaneously monitor the activity of over 100 individual neurons in a portion of the fly brain called the mushroom body (MB). They did this by engineering a line of flies whose MB neurons ...
Honeybees have been used extensively in cognitive neuroscience research for studying behaviours such as learning and memory (1). Higher cognitive processes in insects require neuronal processing within the mushroom bodies, which are particularly large in bees. The mushroom bodies contain Kenyon cells (KCs) which receive multisensory input via predominantly cholinergic synapses (1). Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings are routinely made from dissociated KCs that have been cultured from either pupal or adult honeybees. These recordings have been useful for identifying the properties of voltage-gated ion channels (2-5) and neurotransmitter receptors (6-9) in KCs. However, recordings from cultured neurons present limitations for studying many aspects of neuronal function, because the anatomical and morphological differences between cultured neurons and those in intact tissue are expected to affect their physiological properties. For example, cultured KCs lack both endogenous synaptic connections and ...
The major finding of this study is that antennal lobe projection neurons and mushroom body Kenyon cells express different sets of ionic currents.. Kenyon cells express at least three different voltage-gated outward K+ currents. The transient component comprises a rapidly inactivating (A-type) current and a slowly inactivating current, whose kinetic parameters have been described in great detail (Pelz et al., 1999). The amplitude of the sustained (delayed rectifier) current is relatively small compared to the transient K+ currents, as described in various insect or crustacean neurons (e.g. Byerly and Leung, 1988; Saito and Wu, 1991; Hayashi and Levine, 1992; Delgado et al., 1998; Kloppenburg and Hörner, 1998; Benkenstein et al., 1999; Kloppenburg et al., 1999b; Schmidt et al., 2000 (for a review, see Wicher et al., 2001) and in antennal motoneurons within the honeybee deutocerebrum (Kloppenburg et al., 1999a). By contrast, projection neurons do not express such prominent transient K+ currents. ...
I have been walking around Clifton Park looking for mushrooms and trying to identify them. I have found a large variety of different mushrooms. Each mushroom that I identified is my best guess based on comparing the mushroom to the pictures in the book, and in some cases doing some additional work like taking a spore print. This is not meant to be a definitive resource for identifying mushrooms as some of my guesses may not be 100% accurate. It is more meant to serve as a place for me to keep track of the variety of mushrooms that can be found in the greater capital region of Albany.

Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found a new way of diagnosing and tracking Alzheimers disease, using an innovative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique called Arterial spin labeling (ASL) to measure changes in brain function. The team determined that the ASL-MRI test is a promising alternative to the current standard, a specific PET scan that requires exposure to small amounts of a radioactive glucose analog and costs approximately four-times more than an ASL-MRI. Two studies now appear in Alzheimers and Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimers Association and Neurology. "In brain tissue, regional blood flow is tightly coupled to regional glucose consumption, which is the fuel the brain uses to function. Increases or decreases in brain function are accompanied by changes in both blood flow and glucose metabolism," explained John A. Detre, MD, professor of Neurology and Radiology at Penn, senior author on the papers, who has worked on ...
Fungi are everywhere. They exist under the earth, on top of our skin and inside our bodies. Their spores are floating around us constantly. According to the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew report on The State of Fungi (2018), the total number of fungal species on Earth is between 2.2 and 3.8 million. Ninety three percent of fungal species are currently unknown. Increasingly, fungi are also appearing in contemporary art and design. Mushrooms became prominent in paintings, drawings and collages by contemporary artists in the 1960s. Yayoi Kusama, Sigmar Polke, Paul Thek, Wallace Berman and Cy Twombly were all interested in their fleshy forms. John Cage was a lifelong mushroom obsessive and foraging expert, known in Italy more for his mushroom knowledge than his music. Today, there is a veritable explosion of mushrooms in art. Much has been written about the mushroom in terms of science and the psychedelic. Yet its position in visual history has been less closely examined. Why are artists and designers so ...

Hi Patrick! Great question. Chef John is away on a well deserved vacation and I will be answering questions meanwhile. There are two important keys to make sure the mushrooms dont stick to the pan. The first one is to preheat the pan and the butter before adding mushrooms. The second key is not to stir the mushrooms right away. They need to get a chance to start cooking - this will create a crust of sort and will prevent the mushrooms from sticking to the pan. Give this a try - good luck ...

Ive lived most my life in Michigan, where the elusive morel mushroom is king of the fungal heap. It has an aroma and flavor that is absolutely amazing. Sadly, for me, it exists only in my memory - in one fleeting, hazy moment of my life before I was rushed to the hospital after experiencing a severe allergic reaction from eating a morel mushroom. It was simply amazing. Theyre quite elusive little things, though once when I had retreated to the forest I experienced something entirely unexpected. I was spending four days alone in the woods, hiking the hills and valleys, when I descended into a dried lake bed. It was the second day of my journey. In the the basin was the largest patch of morel mushrooms Id ever seen or heard of. There were literally thousands of them, some of them almost a foot tall. All of them completely deadly to me. Had I some mechanism for removing them from the woods I could have sold them for some obscene amount of money. Or I could have feasted, Bachus-like, a roaring ...
