Individual olfactory learning in Camponotus ants
We studied olfactory learning in two ant species, Camponotus mus from Argentina and Camponotus fellah from Israel. To this end, we established an experimental laboratory protocol in which individualExpand

Danger detection and escape behaviour in wood crickets.
The wind-sensitive cercal system of Orthopteroid insects that mediates the detection of the approach of a predator is a very sensitive sensory system. It has been intensively analysed from aExpand

Responses to Pheromones in a Complex Odor World: Sensory Processing and Behavior
Insects communicating with pheromones, be it sex- or aggregation pheromones, are confronted with an olfactory environment rich in a diversity of volatile organic compounds of which plants are theExpand

Unexpected plant odor responses in a moth pheromone system
Male moths rely on olfactory cues to find females for reproduction. Males also use volatile plant compounds (VPCs) to find food sources and might use host-plant odor cues to identify the habitat ofExpand

Pheromone modulates plant odor responses in the antennal lobe of a moth.
In nature, male moths are exposed to a complex plant odorant environment when they fly upwind to a sex pheromone source in their search for mates. Plant odors have been shown to affect responses toExpand

A Background of a Volatile Plant Compound Alters Neural and Behavioral Responses to the Sex Pheromone Blend in a Moth
Recognition of intra-specific olfactory signals within a complex environment of plant-related volatiles is crucial for reproduction in male moths. Sex pheromone information is detected by specificExpand
