Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity in a Drosophila Memory Mutant

November 9, 2009 6:58 am | by Björn Brembs, Bruno van Swinderen | Articles | Comments

Action selection is modulated by external stimuli either directly or via memory retrieval.

These attention-like processes, in turn, are modulated by memory. The neurobiological nature of how attention, action selection and memory are inter-connected is unknown. We describe here new phenotypes of the memory mutant radish in the fruit fly Drosophila.
