Abstract

Abstract This article discusses the logic underlying the use of invertebrate model systems for investigating the neurobiological basis of learning and memory, the kinds of questions which can be asked of these systems as well as their limitations. A model system selected to answer specific questions about learning and memory is most useful if its selection is based on strategy rather than chance.
