Insect neurogenesis has been subjected to extensive study and as a result is regarded as being well understood. It is, therefore, all the more surprising when a fundamentally novel aspects of the process is uncovered. Until recently it was thought that the production of central neurons ceased before the emergence of the adult. Recently, however, Cayre et al. have shown that neurogenesis also occurs in the adult brain. Their studies also show that the rate at which adult neuroblasts divide is controlled by hormones, suggesting that hormones may play a more important role in regulating neurogenesis than previously suspected.
