  • 15 April 1992
The results suggest that the majority of the OL innervation is provided by olfactory sensilla (aesthetascs), but that other types of sensilla provide additional, likely mechanosensory, input to the OL. Expand
Olfaction: Diverse Species, Conserved Principles
Olfaction is a vitally important sense for all animals and common features span a phylogenetically broad array of animals, implying that there is an optimal solution to the problem of detecting and discriminating odors. Expand
Dual second-messenger pathways in olfactory transduction
Increasing evidence indicates that inositol phosphate as well as cyclic nucleotide signalling pathways mediate olfactory transduction, suggesting that Olfactory receptor cells serve as more than simple selectivity filters and that they possibly represent the first stage of olfaction integration. Expand
Processing of antennular input in the brain of the spiny lobster, Panulirus argus
Division of the arthropod deutocerebrum into two, functionally distinct chemosensory pathways may reflect differences in how chemOSensory information is processed that is fundamental to understanding the origin of the sense of smell. Expand

  • 1 February 1994
Emerging data on how olfactory receptor cells transduce odor information offers some insight into what this still unresolved strategy for detecting and discriminating odors may be. Expand
Single odors differentially stimulate dual second messenger pathways in lobster olfactory receptor cells
The proposition, heretofore based largely on evidence from cultured cells, that dual second messenger pathways mediate excitatory and inhibitory input to lobster olfactory receptor cells is strengthened. Expand

  • 1 October 1992
This study provides the first direct evidence implicating cAMP in olfactory transduction in an invertebrate and contrasts with similar studies in vertebrates that have implicated cAMP as a second messenger mediating excitation. Expand
Antennular projections to the midbrain of the spiny lobster. I. Sensory innervation of the lateral and medial antennular neuropils
The organization of sensory afferents in the antennular nerve (AN) of the spiny lobster and the central arborization of the afferents in the lateral and medial antennular neuropils (LAN, MAN) wereExpand
Ultrastructure of the aesthetasc (olfactory) sensilla of the spiny lobster, Panulirus argus
The aesthetascs of the spiny lobster, Panulirus argus, are hair sensilla located on the lateral filaments of the antennules, where each hair possesses inner and outer auxiliary cells. Expand
Immunocytochemical analysis of glomerular regionalization and neuronal diversity in the olfactory deutocerebrum of the spiny lobster
Results suggest that in the spiny lobster neurochemically distinct subpopulations of local interneurons constitute functionally distinct regions within individual OL glomeruli and across groups of ALglomeruli. Expand
