This is a template for creating a NeuronBank wiki page for a Neuron.

Amphid Neuron is a neuron in C. elegans.

Basic information

Amphid neurons are chemosensory neurons found in C. elegans. Each amphid sensory neuron expresses a specific set of candidate receptor genes and detects a characteristic set of attractants, repellents, or pheromones. About 500-1000 different G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are expressed in chemosensory neurons(Bargmann CI). Chemosensory neurons generally belong to bilaterally symmetric pairs in which the left and right members of each class are structurally similar. Each left-right pair forms a class that can be distinguished from all other classes based on cilium morphology, axon morphology, and synaptic targets (White et al., 1986).. Amphid Neuron: Sensory Neuron, Motor Neuron, local interneuron, projection neuron, etc...


This is where you put information related to the anatomy of the neuron.

  • Where is the Cell body located?
  • What is the axon projection pattern?
  • How many neurons of this type are there in the nervous system?
