    Herman A Dierick
    Department of Molecular and Human Genetics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas 77030, USA
    Curr Biol 18:R161-3. 2008
    ..A new study using an automated method to analyze one component of male fly aggression has shown that the biogenic amine octopamine plays a role in the modulation of aggressive behavior...

    Ralph J Greenspan
    The Neurosciences Institute, San Diego, CA 92118, USA
    Hum Mol Genet 13:R267-73. 2004
    ..Studies of naturally occurring genetic variation in behavior have advanced our understanding of what kinds of variants arise spontaneously and contribute to behavior...

    Herman A Dierick
    The Neurosciences Institute, 10640 John J Hopkins Drive, San Diego, California 92121, USA
    Nat Genet 38:1023-31. 2006
    ..These results suggest that selection for increases in aggression can be used to molecularly dissect this behavior...
  5. ncbi request reprint Serotonin and neuropeptide F have opposite modulatory effects on fly aggression
    Herman A Dierick
    The Neurosciences Institute, 10640 John J Hopkins Drive, San Diego, California 92121, USA
    Nat Genet 39:678-82. 2007
    ..Moreover, this neuropeptide F effect seems to be independent of 5-HT. The implication of these two modulatory systems in fly and mouse aggression suggest a marked degree of conservation and a deep molecular root for this behavior...
