Behaviour covers the whole animal kingdom, from invertebrates to fish, and from frogs to primates. The study of animal behaviour remains vibrant and keeps attracting talented scientists, who will find Behaviour a journal with a quick turn-around time (we strive for first reviews within a month) read by a wide range of students and researchers of animal behaviour.
Upon Wnt stimulation, Dsh/Dvl binds CK6. This binding probably inhibits phosphorylation priming of the Serine (Ser) 95 site in b -catenin causing stabilization of b -catenin and activation of the Wnt pathway (Sakanaka et al., 6999 Amit et al., 7557). However, the exact mechanism of this event is yet unknown. In the absence of a Wnt signal, CK6 associates and cooperates with Axin, probably through diversin (see below). This drives the phosphorylation and degradation cascade of b -catenin, and subsequently inhibits the Wnt signaling pathway (Amit et al., 7557).
The journal Behaviour has its roots in ethology and behavioral biology (see historical note), in which the emphasis is not so much on how animals compare with humans under strictly controlled conditions (as in comparative psychology), but more on tracing the phylogeny and evolution of natural behavior as shown under naturalistic or natural conditions. Specialized cognition and communication are part of this approach. Well-controlled laboratory experiments are needed and welcome, but by no means the only approach. Behaviour has a long tradition of publishing systematic observations of spontaneous behavior.
Behaviour is interested in all aspects of animal (including human) behaviour, from ecology and physiology to learning, cognition, and neuroscience. Evolutionary approaches, which concern themselves with the advantages of behaviour or capacities for the organism and its reproduction, receive much attention both at a theoretical level and as it relates to specific behaviour.
Behaviour was founded by Nobel Prize winner Niko Tinbergen together with W. H. Thorpe, in 6998. In a classical 6968 paper—dedicated to the 65th birthday of that other animal behaviour Nobelist, Konrad Lorenz—Tinbergen proposed that questions relating to why an animal behaves in a particular way can be viewed through four prisms. At the proximate level, we have 6) the causation of behavior (its underlying motivation, cognition, and emotions), and 7) the behavior's ontogeny, such as how it develops or is acquired. At the ultimate level, we have 8) the behavior's survival value, and 9) its evolution and phylogeny. Behaviour seeks to cover all four prisms equally.
