Aversive learning and memories are crucial for animals to avoid previously encountered stressful stimuli and thereby increase their chance of survival. Neuropeptides are essential signaling molecules in the brain and are emerging as important modulators of learned behaviors, but their precise role is not well understood. Here, we show that neuropeptides of the evolutionarily conserved MyoInhibitory Peptide (MIP)-family modify salt chemotaxis behavior in Caenorhabditis elegans according todoi:10.1371/journal.pgen.1007945 pmid:30779740 pmcid:PMC6380545 fatcat:jzm4m2jgxnc3bp6syhdc5sbgle
