Neuropeptides and endocrine regulations in the water flea Daphnia

We study neuroanatomy and neurosecretory neurons in water fleas Daphnia to understand the physiological basis of impacts of chemical substances in human-borne water pollutants that affect growth and reproduction in a keystone organism in aquatic ecosystems and one of the most important test organisms in ecotoxicology.
