... signals that provide information about obstacles and predators. Here, we investigate how spontaneously walking crickets and crickets engaging in acoustically guided goal-directed navigation, i.e. phonotaxis, respond to mechanosensory stimuli detected by their long antennae. We monitored walking behaviour...

...Sushma Boppana; Julián F. Hillyer Mosquito antennae provide sensory input that modulates host-seeking, mating and oviposition behaviors. Thus, mosquitoes must ensure the efficient transport of molecules into and out of these appendages. To accomplish this, mosquitoes and other insects have evolved...

... antenna insect anemotaxis Johnston's organ Drosophila melanogaster is a useful model organism for studying olfaction, in part because it offers powerful genetic tools for manipulating neural activity in the olfactory system ( Holmes et al., 2007 ; Luo et al., 2008 ; Olsen and Wilson, 2008...

... showed that (1) the antennae are preferentially directed forward as animals run, and (2) nearly simultaneous contact with both antennae is required to make the cockroach stop. Our data indicate that running cockroaches employ strategies that set their sensorimotor systems in a mode of readiness to deal...

...Heidi Pye Henninger; Winsor H. Watson, III SUMMARY American lobsters produce carapace vibrations, which also lead to waterborne acoustic signals, by simultaneously contracting the antagonistic remotor and promotor muscles located at the base of the second antenna. These vibrations have a mean...

...Jiro Okada; Yoshihiro Toh SUMMARY To characterize the spatio-temporal patterns of antennal behavior in insects, the voluntary movement of both right and left antennae was examined in the cockroach Periplaneta americana . The position of the tip of the antenna (flagellum) is controlled by two mobile...

The peak RI values for the attractive compounds are in the same range as we found for ethyl acetate and suggest that these novel ligands are equally potent Drosophila attractants as ethyl acetate. The fruitfly D. melanogaster antenna houses highly sensitive ORNs physiologically...

Examination of the mechanical responses of the antennal structures established that the distal antennal parts (the funiculus and the arista) together...

...J. Okada; Y. Toh SUMMARY Arthropods have hair plates that are clusters of mechanosensitive hairs, usually positioned close to joints, which function as proprioceptors for joint movement. We investigated how angular movements of the antenna of the cockroach ( Periplaneta americana ) are coded...

... activity was reduced during voluntary antennal movements. The reduction in activity occurred even after de-efferentation of the antenna, indicating that it had a central origin. Although we do not have experimental evidence for behavioural roles for the descending antennal mechanosensory interneurons...
