The coordination of behavior and physiology by the nervous system is complex, requiring the integration of inputs from the environment. Sensory neurons, as the detectors of external stimuli, have the important role of detecting and relaying this information to the rest of the nervous system. Proper formation, connectivity, and function of dendrites and cilia in sensory neurons are essential for the detection of stimuli. In this thesis, I use the power of invertebrate genetic systems to explore the development and function of these neuronal structures.... 1995) Required for maintenance of dendritic branches (Emoto et al., 2006) Hippo Ste-20 family (Harvey et al., 2003) ...
