1. Development of Connectivity in a Motoneuronal Network in Drosophila Larvae

    Current Biology 25(5):568 (2015) PMID 25702582 PMCID PMC4353686

    Background Much of our understanding of how neural networks develop is based on studies of sensory systems, revealing often highly stereotyped patterns of connections, particularly as these diverge from the presynaptic terminals of sensory neurons. We know considerably less a...

  4. Function and central projections of gustatory receptor neurons on the antenna of the noctuid moth Spodoptera littoralis.

    Journal of Comparative Physiology, A 199(5):403 (2013) PMID 23440349

    Chemosensory information is crucial for most insects to feed and reproduce. Olfactory signals are mainly used at a distance, whereas gustatory stimuli play an important role when insects directly contact chemical substrates. In noctuid moths, although the antennae are the main olfactory organ, t...

  6. Three-dimensional antennal lobe atlas of the oriental fruit moth, Cydia molesta (Busck) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae): comparison of male and female glomerular organization.

    Cell and Tissue Research 337(3):513 (2009) PMID 19649654

    The oriental fruit moth Cydia molesta is an important pest and the behavioural role of olfactory signals such as pheromones and plant volatiles have been studied extensively in both sexes. To understand odour processing further, however, detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the olfactory system ...

  8. Constancy and variability of identified glomeruli in antennal lobes: computational approach in Spodoptera littoralis.

    Cell and Tissue Research 337(3):491 (2009) PMID 19649656

    The primary olfactory centres share striking similarities across the animal kingdom. The most conspicuous is their subdivision into glomeruli, which are spherical neuropil masses in which synaptic contacts between sensory and central neurons occur. Glomeruli have both an anatomical identity (bei...

  10. Antennal pathways in the central nervous system of a blood-sucking bug, Rhodnius prolixus.

    Arthropod Structure & Development 38(2):101 (2009) PMID 18809510

    The haematophagous bug Rhodnius prolixus has been a model system in insect physiology for a long time. Recently, several studies have been devoted to its sensory systems, including olfaction. However, few data are available on the basic organisation of the nervous system in this species. By mean...

  13. Temporal modulation and adaptive control of the behavioural response to odours in Rhodnius prolixus.

    Journal of Insect Physiology 54(9):1343 (2008) PMID 18692504

    It has been demonstrated in several insect species that a circadian clock makes the whole of antennal chemoreceptors more sensitive during a particular temporal window every day. This assessment raises the question about how insects exhibiting bimodal activity handle their sensitivity to odours ...
