    Presumably some headway has been made in this area? I can't find anything on it.

    I don't know of any, but that may not mean much. Are you thinking of development of the nervous system, or expression of neurotransmitters and that sort of thing?

    Anyway, let us know if you find anything!

    This area seems to be completely stopping, but a group of U of Chicago is studying neurogenesis and molecular brain patterning in O. bimacu. And not octo, yet French group in Sepia and Hawaii Univ in Euprymna.

    I guess there is only one comprehensive and classic paper (Marquis, 1989) for octopus neurogenesis with German, but others can be found via Google scholar.

    Octopus neurogenesis isn't what I'm talking about. I'm talking about neurogenetics.

    Mostly neural development; I'm thinking comparative neurogenetics.

    > I mean all lab studying neurogenesis are interested in neurogenetics, a molecular basis of neurodevelopment.
    Also including bioinformatics and molecular methodology.

    It sounds like a pretty specialized field. Can you help me out: what exactly would these studies look at?
