Evaluation of the behavioral roles of ascending auditory interneurons in calling song phonotaxis by the female cricket (Acheta domesticus)
TLDR
Inactivation of one L3 and occlusion of the ear providing input to the contralateral L1 and L3, leave only one L1 functioning, which results in turning and circling toward the unoccluded side containing the one functioning L1, thus confirming the sufficiency of L1 for phono taxis. Expand
Enhanced calling song syllable period discrimination during one-eared phonotaxis by the female cricket (Acheta domesticus)
TLDR
The mean number of complete turns by a cricket with one ear occluded is greatest in response to syllable periods that are most attractive and thus can be used as a measurement of the relative attractiveness of the CS presented. Expand
Selective processing of calling songs by auditory interneurons in the female cricket, Gryllus pennsylvanicus: possible roles in behavior.
TLDR
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. Expand
Parallel effects of temperature on the male cricket calling song, phonotaxis of the female and the auditory responses of the L3 neurone
TLDR
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. Expand
Age-correlated changes and juvenile hormone III regulation of the syllable period specific responses of the L3 auditory interneurons in the cricket, Acheta domesticus
TLDR
The degree of syllable period (SP) specific decrement to model calling songs is age-specific in L3, and changes in the SP selectivity of L3 by age and JHIII application correlate well with changes that have been demonstrated to occur in the selection of phonotaxis under similar conditions. Expand
Processing of Song Signals in the Cricket and its Hormonal Control
TLDR
Results from in situ hybridization suggest that this might be accomplished, in part, by controlling the levels of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor-like mRNA expressed in LI, presumably by increasing its neurotransmitter receptor density. Expand
Prolonged response to calling songs by the L3 auditory interneuron in female crickets (Acheta domesticus): intracellular evaluation.
TLDR
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. Expand
Prolonged response to calling songs by the L3 auditory interneuron in female crickets (Acheta domesticus): possible roles in regulating phonotactic threshold and selectiveness for call carrier
TLDR
Of the 3 types of responses to CSs provided by the ascending L1 and L3 auditory interneurons, the threshold for L3's prolonged response, on average, best matched the same females phonotactic threshold. Expand
