Amnesiac mutant flies have an olfactory memory defect. The amn gene encodes a homolog of vertebrate pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide (PACAP), and it is strongly expressed in dorsal paired medial (DPM) neurons. DPM neurons ramify throughout the mushroom bodies in the adult fly brain, and they are required for stable memory. Here, we show that DPM neuron output is only required during the consolidation phase for middle-term odor memory and is dispensable during acquisition and rec...Expand abstract
