The nervous system of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has been well described in terms of cell lineage, neural anatomy and connectivity. Identifying mutations that disrupt these defining characteristics has led to a detailed understanding of the genetic and molecular mechanisms of neural development in C. elegans.
