Asymmetric neurotransmitter release enables rapid odor lateralization in Drosophila
In Drosophila, most individual olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) project bilaterally to both sides of the brain. Having bilateral rather than unilateral projections may represent a useful redundancy.Expand

Phototactic personality in fruit flies and its suppression by serotonin and white
Drosophila typically move toward light (phototax positively) when startled. The various species of Drosophila exhibit some variation in their respective mean phototactic behaviors; however, it is notExpand

Neuronal control of locomotor handedness in Drosophila
Significance Genetically identical individuals display variability in their behaviors even when reared in essentially identical environments. This variation underlies both personality andExpand

Leg-tracking and automated behavioural classification in Drosophila
Much remains unknown about how the nervous system of an animal generates behaviour, and even less is known about the evolution of behaviour. How does evolution alter existing behaviours or inventExpand

Systematic exploration of unsupervised methods for mapping behavior.
To fully understand the mechanisms giving rise to behavior, we need to be able to precisely measure it. When coupled with large behavioral data sets, unsupervised clustering methods offer theExpand

Neuronal control of locomotor handedness in Drosophila
Handedness in humans – better performance using either the left or right hand – is personally familiar, moderately heritable1, and regulated by many genes2, including those involved in general bodyExpand

Variability in thermal and phototactic preferences in Drosophila may reflect an adaptive bet‐hedging strategy
Organisms use various strategies to cope with fluctuating environmental conditions. In diversified bet‐hedging, a single genotype exhibits phenotypic heterogeneity with the expectation that someExpand

Bet-hedging, seasons and the evolution of behavioral diversity in Drosophila
Organisms use various strategies to cope with fluctuating environmental conditions. In diversified bet-hedging, a single genotype exhibits phenotypic heterogeneity with the expectation that someExpand
