This preface is addressed to the reader who needs to inquire into the present options, hypotheses and theories approximately improvement of sensory platforms and needs to grasp how they're exemplified within the following chapters. i think that technological know-how is speculation and thought and that the expansion and evolution of any department of technological know-how might be measured through the measure to which its theories were reified. by way of that normal, one needs to conc1ude that developmental neuro­ biologie is in its infancy. The fast accumulation of observations which has happened during this department of technology some time past century results in growth in simple terms to the level that the evidence validate or falsify hypotheses. the next chapters express that we have got a plethora of evidence yet a dearth of hypotheses. one other index of the adulthood of any department of technological know-how is its point of historic self-awareness. as the heritage of any department of technology is basically the heritage of principles and of the increase and fall of theories, the extent of ancient know-how is said to the level to which reification of its hypothetical constructs has complex. it truly is mostly simply because few theories of improvement of sensory structures, or certainly, of developmental neurobiology, have stepped forward some distance within the means of reification that the his tory of developmental neurobiology is still unwritten. the topic of this quantity is not often pointed out within the many books dedicated to the historical past of comparable disciplines.

Sample text

Although in some insects differentiation of the lamina follows the arrival ofaxons of retinula cells or is synchronized with it, this is not always the case. In Culex (PFLUGFELDER, 1937) and Danaus (NORDLANDER and EDWARDS, 1969b) lamina differentiation precedes the ingrowth of retinal axons, ruling out an inductive relation between the two. 22 C. M. BATE: Development of Sensory Systems in Arthropods F. The Peripheral Nervous System The axons of the. sense cells that differentiate in the epidermis reach the central ganglia by growing along extended peripheral nerve trunks.

Where the eye develops externally during larvallife, the bundle of retinula axons from the larval eye provides a pathway between the surface and the optic lobe, down which the accumulating axons of the differentiating adult eye grow in sequence during postembryonie life (Cu/ex, PFLUGFELDER, 1937; Gyrinus, BOTT, 1928). In Lepidoptera (MURRAY and TIEGs, 1935; NORDLANDER and EDWARDS, 1969b; UMBACH, 1934) and some Coleoptera (KIRCHHOFFER, 1910) the axons of the adult eye succeed the migrating pigment ofthe larval stemmata, which moves inwards to the optic lobes at the end of larval life.

34 C. M. BATE: Development of Sensory Systems in Arthropods G. Tbe Formation of Nerve Connections Because the arthropod nervous system is divided into two halves, the one continually contributing axons to the other during an extended larvallife, it invites an experimental analysis of the formation of connections between the two. This is all the more so because the patterns of receptors are predictable and they terminate on identifiable central neurons, so that the same group of cells can be used repeatedly in experimental tests.
