Lindy Holden-Dye

P_Lindy HoldenDye 1_95x120px
Lindy Holden-Dye obtained her BSc in Physiology at University College Cardiff, Wales an MSc in MSc Biochemical Pharmacology at the University of Southampton, UK and her PhD in neuropharmacology also at University of Southampton, UK. She currently holds a personal Chair in Neuroscience at the University of Southampton. Her research interests address fundamental aspects of neuronal signaling, especially chemical neurotransmission and its role in behavioral plasticity, using a range of techniques including molecular genetics, neurochemistry and electrophysiology and focusing on the model genetic animal Caenorhabditis elegans. Through links with the animal health/agrochemical industry she also conducts mode of action studies for novel neuroactive molecules in the nematode nervous system. She has published more than 160 peer reviewed papers on these topics and has been a lifelong enthusiastic promoter of the discipline of invertebrate neuroscience. She is an elected Fellow of the British Pharmacological Society and the Royal Society of Biology.

    Aims and Scope


    Invertebrate Neurosciences publishes peer-reviewed original articles, reviews and technical reports describing recent advances in the field of invertebrate neuroscience. The journal reports on research that exploits the simplicity and experimental tractability of the invertebrate preparations to underpin fundamental advances in neuroscience. Articles published in Invertebrate Neurosciences serve to highlight properties of signalling in the invertebrate nervous system that may be exploited in the field of antiparisitics, molluscicides and insecticides.

    Aspects of particular interest include:

      • Functional analysis of the invertebrate nervous system
      • Molecular neuropharmacology and toxicology
      • Neurogenetics and genomics
      • Functional anatomy
      • Neurodevelopment
      • Neuronal networks
      • Molecular and cellular mechanisms of behavior and behavioural plasticity

    For Authors

    Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as – tacitly or explicitly – by the responsible authorities at the institution where the work was carried out.

    Author warrants (i) that he/she is the sole owner or has been authorized by any additional copyright owner to assign the right, (ii) that the article does not infringe any third party rights and no license from or payments to a third party is required to publish the article and (iii) that the article has not been previously published or licensed.

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
