Show Summary Details


Cephalopods (octopus, squid, cuttlefish) are among the most intelligent invertebrates, with highly developed nervous systems that provide excellent model systems for investigating basic questions in neuroscience. In 32 chapters, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the functioning of the cephalopod nervous system, from the cellular level to their complex sensory systems, locomotion, learning and social behaviour.

Keywords: cephalopods; octopus; squid; cuttlefish; invertebrates; nervous systems; neuroscience; sensory systems; locomotion; social behaviour
