Ultrastructure and physiology of the CO2 sensitive sensillum ampullaceum in the leaf-cutting ant Atta sexdens.
The sensilla ampullacea on the apical antennomere of the leaf-cutting ant Atta sexdens were investigated regarding both their responses to CO2 and their ultrastructure. By staining the sensillumExpand

Accessory pathway for sound transfer in a neotropical frog.
A portion of the lateral body wall overlying the lung cavity of the arboreal frog, Eleutherodactylus coqui, vibrates in response to free-field sound. Peak displacement amplitude of the body wall inExpand

The Detection of Waterborne Vibration by Sensory Hairs on the Chelae of the Crayfish
Sensory hairs on the chelae of the Australian freshwater crayfish Cherax destructor are grouped together into pits. Electrophysiological recordings from the sensory axons of isolated chelipeds showExpand

Invertebrate Auditory Receptors
TLDR
A review of auditory receptors in arthropods is faced with the problem of treating a great diversity of sound waves employed in this large taxon, either for social communication, or for the detection of predators or prey. Expand

Functional morphology of the subgenual organ of the carpenter ant.
Using light microscopy, confocal microscopy, electron microscopy and histochemistry, the subgenual organ (SGO) of an ant, Camponutas ligniperda, is investigated. Sensory units and attachment cellsExpand

Comparison of directional selectivity in identified spiking and nonspiking mechanosensory neurons in the crayfish Orconectes limosus.
We have recorded electrical activity from two identified synaptically coupled mechanosensory interneurons in the abdominal nervous system of the crayfish Orconectes limosus and have studied theirExpand

Phase reversal of vibratory signals in honeycomb may assist dancing honeybees to attract their audience.
Forager honeybees dancing on the comb are able to attract dance-followers from distances across the comb that are too remote for tactile or visual signals to play a role. An alternative signal couldExpand

Raman spectroscopic study of spatial distribution of propolis in comb of Apis mellifera carnica (Pollm.).
Micro-Raman spectroscopy and Raman mapping are applied to investigate the spatial distribution and chemical composition of wax and propolis in the comb of Apis mellifera carnica (Pollm). A thickExpand
