I assume the Chitauri are living organisms. Why then when the nuke took out their mothership did they 'shut down' like droids?

The Chitauri have a hive mind. Their neurological systems operate as subsidiaries to one main system which controls them. When the hive (in their mothership) was destroyed, they died.
