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. Expand
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. Expand
Changes in phonotaxis by the female cricketAcheta domesticus L. after killing identified acoustic interneurons
SummaryPhonotactic selectivity of female crickets to natural and model calling songs (CSs) has been well documented. No identified acoustic interneurons or groups of them exhibited sufficientlyExpand
Influence of syllable period on song encoding properties of an ascending auditory interneuron in the cricketAcheta domestica
Summary1.L3 is a prothoracic auditory interneuron which has an ascending axon projecting to the brain. It is rather broadly tuned and most sensitive to carrier frequencies around 16 kHz (meanExpand
Processing of unilateral and bilateral auditory inputs by the ON1 and L1 interneurons of the cricket Acheta domesticus and comparison to other cricket species
Results of two-tone experiments show a tuning of inhibition in ON1 and L1 which is similar to excitatory tuning of ON1, however with about 10 to 15 dB higher thresholds. Expand
The effect of visual input on calling song attractiveness for female Acheta domesticus
Seven of the ten females that tracked a visually attractive target when presented alone in the light reduced the range of SPs they tracked phonotactically to 50–70 ms, while three continued to respond to model calling songs with a wide range ofSPs when given a choice between visual and acoustical targets under the same conditions.

Minimizing Lameness through Genetic Selection
Today’s dairy cow faces many different environmental and management challenges than the cows of the past, and foot and leg conformation is of even greater significance in the presence of these modern management stressors. Expand
The effects of injecting Juvenile Hormone III into the prothoracic ganglion on phonotaxis by female crickets Gryllus bimaculatus
Nanoinjection of Juvenile Hormone III (JH III) into the prothoracic ganglion causes virgin female crickets Gryllus bimaculatus De Geer to become more phonotactically selective for the syllableExpand
Evaluation of age-dependent susceptibility in calves infected with two doses of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis using pathology and tissue culture
Calves to 1 year of age were susceptible to MAP infection and a high infection dose produced more severe lesions than a low dose, and those infected with a high dose had more severe scores for histologic and macroscopic lesions as well as more culture-positive tissue locations compared to calves infected withA low dose.

Age‐Dependent occurrence of an ascending axon on the omega neuron of the cricket, Teleogryllus oceanicus
Evidence is presented to show that ON1s having ascending axons are developmental variants of the “archetypical” ON1 and do not represent a separate neuron type. Expand
