In nature the aerial trace of pheromone used by male moths to find a female appears as a train of discontinuous pulses separated by gaps among a complex odorant background constituted of plant volatiles. We investigated the effect of such background odor on behavior and coding of temporal parameters of pheromone pulse trains in the pheromone olfactory(More)
Rapidly adapting (RA) currents expressed in dorsal root ganglia somatosensory neurons reduce their amplitude in response to prolonged and/or repeated mechanical stimulation. Both inactivation of mechanotransducer channels and adaptation of the force acting on the channels have been suggested to independently decrease RA currents. However, these two(More)
