Insect neurochemistry and neurobiology are active and growing areas of neuroscience research. Scientists believe that insect neuropeptides will lead to novel approaches to insect control. This new volume assesses the state of research in insect neuropeptides and identifies promising directions for future work. Its 22 chapters present information on developmental neuropeptides, and biochemistry and molecular biology. Of special interest is a chapter by Max Summers on the expression of foreign peptides in baculoviruses, which could pave the way for a method of introducing neuropeptide-regulating genes into living insects.
