Structural Properties of the Caenorhabditis elegans Neuronal Network

Figure 2

The C. elegans wiring diagram is a network of identifiable, labeled neurons connected by chemical and electrical synapses.

Red, sensory neurons; blue, interneurons; green, motorneurons. (a). Signal flow view shows neurons arranged so that the direction of signal flow is mostly downward. (b). Affinity view shows structure in the horizontal plane reflecting weighted non-directional adjacency of neurons in the network.
