Seeing smells: imaging olfactory learning in bees
- A. Borst
- Nature Neuroscience
Using calcium imaging as bees learn to associate odors with a reward, Faber and colleagues show that learning changes activity patterns at the earliest olfactory site in the brain.
Information theory and neural coding
We show how to use information theory to validate simple stimulus–response models of neural coding of dynamic stimuli and show that each spike contributes to information transmission. Expand
A genetically encoded calcium indicator for chronic in vivo two-photon imaging
Neurons in the nervous system can change their functional properties over time. At present, there are no techniques that allow reliable monitoring of changes within identified neurons over repeated… Expand

Two Drosophila mutants are described in which the connections between the input to and the output from the mushroom bodies is largely interrupted. In all forms of the flies (larva, imago, male,… Expand
A FRET-based calcium biosensor with fast signal kinetics and high fluorescence change.

Genetically encoded calcium biosensors have become valuable tools in cell biology and neuroscience, but some aspects such as signal strength and response kinetics still need improvement. Here we… Expand
Neural networks in the cockpit of the fly
Abstract. Flies have been buzzing around on earth for over 300 million years. During this time they have radiated into more than 125,000 different species (Yeates and Wiegmann 1999), so that, by now,… Expand
Fly motion vision.
Optic flow processing is accomplished in a series of steps: First, the time-varying photoreceptor signals are fed into a two-dimensional array of Reichardt-type elementary motion detectors . Expand
A directional tuning map of Drosophila elementary motion detectors
The extraction of directional motion information from changing retinal images is one of the earliest and most important processing steps in any visual system. In the fly optic lobe, two parallel… Expand
Principles of visual motion detection
We show that the mechanisms underlying biological motion detection can be attributed to only a few, essentially equivalent computational principles. Expand
ON and OFF pathways in Drosophila motion vision
Motion vision is a major function of all visual systems, yet the underlying neural mechanisms and circuits are still elusive. In the lamina, the first optic neuropile of Drosophila melanogaster,… Expand
