The ability of animals to process dynamic sensory information facilitates foraging in an ever changing environment. However, molecular and neural mechanisms underlying such ability remain elusive. The ClC anion channels/transporters play a pivotal role in cellular ion homeostasis across all phyla. Here we find a ClC chloride channel is involved in salt concentration chemotaxis of C. elegans. Genetic screening identified two altered-function mutations of clh-1 that disrupt experience-dependent salt chemotaxis. Using genetically encoded fluorescent sensors,...
