Review of Drosophila a model for neuropsychopharmacology-related research

Narayanan AS, Rothenfluh A. I Believe I Can Fly!: Use of Drosophila as a Model Organism in Neuropsychopharmacology Research. Neuropsychopharmacology. 2015 Oct 30. PMID: 26576740.

From the abstract:  "... Here, we outline why we study an invertebrate organism in the context of neuropsychiatric disorders, and we discuss how we can gain insight from studies in Drosophila. ... Highlighting some translational examples, we underline the fact that their brains works more like ours than one would have anticipated."

Their Fig. 1 provides a nice graphical summary of translational approaches.
