Mawwiage is what bwings us togeva today: How a simple snail intersects neuroscience and marine biology in exciting ways (Part II)

Part II of III in a series of guest posts by TAMUCC grad student Kevin Wolfe! How a marine snail became a cornerstone in learning and memory research I cannot emphasize enough how important Aplysia has been for the fields of learning and memory. Though the structure and function of the neuron itself was obtained … Continue reading
