We study X-organ cells from the X-organ/sinus gland complex of the optic lobes in the eyestalks.  These neurosecretory cells synthesize a variety of neuropeptides important in regulating physiology and growth in crustaceans.  They also respond to numerous neurotransmitters and neuromodulators, making them interesting model systems for the study of neuron growth, development, and disease.
