Investigation of the role of rfp-1 in synaptic signaling in C. elegans

Abstract Proper neuronal signaling is crucial for any organism to maintain its neurological functions. Abnormal changes in neurotransmitter levels are implicated in neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases. Deficiencies in the balance of excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmission occur in several types of neurodegenerative disease, and deficiencies in sensory signaling can accompany and exacerbate these conditions. A common …
