... in the brain, to generate steering commands. In insects that navigate relative to sky compass signals, CX neurons are tuned to celestial cues indicating the location of the sun. The desert locust CX contains a compass-like representation of two related celestial cues: the direction of unpolarized direct...

...Uta Pegel; Keram Pfeiffer; Uwe Homberg ABSTRACT Many insects rely on celestial compass cues such as the polarization pattern of the sky for spatial orientation. In the desert locust, the central complex (CX) houses multiple sets of neurons, sensitive to the oscillation plane of polarized light...

...Graham K. Taylor; Adrian L. R. Thomas SUMMARY Here we provide the first formal quantitative analysis of dynamic stability in a flying animal. By measuring the longitudinal static stability derivatives and mass distribution of desert locusts Schistocerca gregaria , we find that their static...

...Amir Ayali; Yael Zilberstein; Netta Cohen SUMMARY The frontal ganglion (FG) is part of the insect stomatogastric nervous system and is found in most insect orders. Previous work has shown that in the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria , the FG constitutes a major source of innervation...

...Yael Zilberstein; Amir Ayali SUMMARY In the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria , the frontal ganglion(FG) plays a key role in control of foregut movements, and constitutes a source of innervation to the foregut dilator muscles. In this work we studied the generation and characteristics of FG...
