    Atsuko Sato
    Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford, United Kingdom
    Dev Dyn 237:3634-9. 2008
    ..Together with previous studies, our results suggest that hemichordates have undergone degeneration in the precision of asymmetry from an ancestral asymmetrical condition that existed before the divergence of deuterostomes...

    Atsuko Sato
    Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3PS, United Kingdom
    Genesis 46:587-91. 2008
    ..Given that the larval and adult forms differ from enteropneusts, we suggest that molecular developmental studies of pterobranchs may offer new insights into chordate origins...

    Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PS, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:7491-4. 2009
    ..We conclude that the Hh sequence and expression in S. kowalevskii represent the derived state for deuterostomes, and we argue that functional evolution accompanied secondary reduction of the central nervous system in harrimaniids...
