The central nervous system (CNS) of grasshopper embryos is similar in organization to the embryonic Drosophila CNS, but its neurons are much larger. The recent development of a culture system in which extensive CNS development occurs has allowed new types of experiments to be performed, including perturbation of gene expression within single neuroblast lineages.
