Dear WormBook readers,

A new chapter, C. elegans feeding, by Leon Avery and Young-jai You,
has been published in the Neurobiology and behavior section of
WormBook. This chapter provides an overview of feeding, discusses
the pharyngeal muscle action potential and describes isthmus
peristalsis. Behavioral aspects of feeding, such as hunger, food
seeking and satiety, are also discussed.

Please visit to read this and other chapters
on nematode biology.
