Sex-specific antennal sensory system in the ant Camponotus japonicus: structure and distribution of sensilla on the flagellum
This is the first report presenting comprehensive sensillar maps of antennae in ants and coelocapitular sensilla (putatively hygro- and thermoreceptive) have been newly identified in this study. Expand
Functional and topographic segregation of glomeruli revealed by local staining of antennal sensory neurons in the honeybee Apis mellifera
The results suggest that some degree of somatotopic organization of sensory afferents exist in T1–3 glomeruli, and part of T4glomeruli serve for processing of hygro‐ and thermosensory signals. Expand
Sex‐specific antennal sensory system in the ant Camponotus japonicus: Glomerular organizations of antennal lobes
The common and sex‐specific glomerular organizations in the primary olfactory center, the antennal lobe of the carpenter ant Camponotus japonicus, are described and T6 glomeruli in workers and virgin females are described. Expand
Sexual Dimorphism in the Antennal Lobe of the Ant Camponotus japonicus
The great sexual dimorphism seen in the ordinary glomeruli of the antennal lobe may reflect gender-specific tasks in chemical communications rather than different reproductive roles in social life. Expand
Removal of mercury vapor from air with sulfur-impregnated adsorbents
The adsorption process of mercury vapor on sulfur-impregnated activated carbon, active alumina, and zeolite was experimentally studied by using packed beds. It was found that the sulfur-impregnatedExpand
Dual, multilayered somatosensory maps formed by antennal tactile and contact chemosensory afferents in an insect brain
Observations suggest that touch and taste positional information from the antenna is precisely represented in primary centers in a modality‐specific manner. Expand
Topographic organization of sensory afferents of Johnston's organ in the honeybee brain
The results show that projection patterns of JO afferents in the honeybee brain fundamentally resemble those in the dipteran brain. Expand
Somatotopic mapping of chordotonal organ neurons in a primitive ensiferan, the New Zealand tree weta Hemideina femorata: II. complex tibial organ
The structure of the weta, Hemideina femorata, tibial organs and their central projections are investigated and reports of a membranous organ structure for homologs in other ensiferans, which contain receptor cells embedded in thick solid masses are investigated. Expand
Antihypertensive effects of CS-905, a novel dihydropyridine Ca++ channel blocker.
The blood pressure lowering effects of CS-905 was most potent in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats, followed by SHR, RHR and normotensive Rats, in this order. Expand
Projection neurons originating from thermo‐ and hygrosensory glomeruli in the antennal lobe of the cockroach
A new class of interneurons with dendrites almost exclusively in the DC1, DC2, or DC3 glomeruli and axons projecting to the protocerebrum in the cockroach is identified, suggesting that dorsocentral PNs participate in neural pathways that lead to behavioral responses to temperature or humidity changes.
