Plasticity of the phonotactic selectiveness of four species of chirping crickets (Gryllidae): Implications for call recognition
The results suggest that the plasticity of phonotactic behaviour collectively exhibited by the females of each species does not ensure that choices of a male's CS effectively focus the female's phonOTactic responses on CSs that represent the conspecific male.
Modulation of syllable period‐selective phonotaxis by prothoracic neurones in crickets (Acheta domesticus): juvenile hormone, picrotoxin and photoinactivation of the ON1 neurones
Results indicate that circuits in the prothoracic ganglion modulate the SP‐selectivity of phonotaxis.
Differential expression of preproenkephalin and preprodynorphin mRNAs in striatal neurons: high levels of preproenkephalin expression depend on cerebral cortical afferents

Striatal preproenkephalin mRNA is thus more prominent than preprodynorphin mRNA and depends on cerebral cortical inputs for its full expression and changes largely between 1 and 5 d following the lesion.

In females, AN2's immediate (in the presence of picrotoxin) and prolonged responses were selectively tuned to the SPs and carrier frequencies of the male's calls that were most attractive behaviorally.
Parallel effects of temperature on the male cricket calling song, phonotaxis of the female and the auditory responses of the L3 neurone
A temperature shift in the response to syllable period of the L3 auditory neurone parallels the temperature shift seen in the phonotactic response over a similar temperature range, which support the model of the involvement of L3 in the voiceless response and its modulation by temperature.
Prolonged response to calling songs by the L3 auditory interneuron in female crickets (Acheta domesticus): intracellular evaluation.
The L3 auditory interneuron in female Acheta domesticus, produces two different responses to the male calling song: an immediate response and a prolonged response, both of which are clearly seen in intracellular recordings.

Abstract This study investigated students’ perceptions of the study of evolution in a small conservative Christian college. Students’ interest in the subject is influenced by several factors,…
Nanoinjection of neurotransmitters into the prothoracic ganglion of female cricket Acheta domesticus changes phonotactic selectivity
The phonotactic response by female crickets is influenced by Juvenile Hormone III, which affects selectivity to the syllable period of the calling song, and nanoinjection of five neurotransmitters into the prothoracic ganglion of virgin female Acheta domesticus identified potential neurotransmitter involved in such pathway.
