Abstract

With the impending climate change crisis, it is important to understand the effect that increased incubation temperatures will have on ectotherm development, particularly brain development. This study shows the development of A. sagrei brains under normal conditions in order to provide a comparison for abnormal development of the brain under heat stress.
