|Abstract:||An advanced understanding of neurohormonal activation and inhibition of numerous functions is vital for two important reasons. First, basic research gradually elucidates the mechanisms by which activation of many neurohormonal systems causes further alteration in various gene expressions. Second, pharmacologic agents can be designed and used to interfere with the target specific components of neurohormonal systems. Future approaches will probably emphasize on specific characteristics of neurohormonal systems, comprising targeting neurohormones and the intracellular second messenger systems. Accordingly, the objective of this review is to define the mechanisms of neurohormonal activation of various functions in crustaceans and to deliver a comprehensive description. This review will also serve as a vital reference for researchers by providing the structural and physiological basis for current and future research in the field of crustacean Neurobiology.|
