Differential Contributions of Olfactory Receptor Neurons in a Drosophila Olfactory Circuit
The ability of an animal to detect, discriminate, and respond to odors depends on the functions of its olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs). The extent to which each ORN, upon activation, contributes to chemotaxis is not well ...
miR-124 Regulates the Phase of Drosophila Circadian Locomotor Behavior
Animals use circadian rhythms to anticipate daily environmental changes. Circadian clocks have a profound effect on behavior. In Drosophila, for example, brain pacemaker neurons dictate that flies are mostly active at dawn ...
