Structure and Evolution of Dragon Brains [article]

Daniel Hoops, University, The Australian National, University, The Australian National
This thesis is about the evolution of brain structure in lizards, with a particular focus on the agamid lizards of the genus Ctenophorus.  ...  Nonetheless, in the past twenty years there have been significant advances in our understanding of the neurobiology of reptiles, particularly among squamates (lizards and snakes).  ...  For example, stimulation of the retina with light flashes evokes electrical activity in the contralateral dorsal cortex (103) .  ...
