Gene expression and sensory structures in sponges: Explorations of sensory-neural origins in a non-bilaterian contextDownload
The nervous system is present in all but two animal phyla – one of them being Porifera, sponges. Sponges have no neurons and yet have organized behavior and finely tuned sensation. Furthermore, sponges have genes involved in the nervous system of other animals (informally called ‘neural’ genes)....
