Conditioned courtship inDrosophila and its mediation by association of chemical cues
AlthoughDrosophila melanogaster males usually court virgin females vigorously, a male will perform very little courtship in response to a virgin female if he has previously been in the presence of aExpand

Courtship-stimulating volatile compounds from normal and mutant Drosophila
Abstract Volatile compounds from Drosophila melanogaster males and females dramatically affect male courtship behaviour. These substances, which have been extracted from flies of different ages andExpand
Analyse du comportement de cour de D. a. pour determiner si des modifications du comportement de cour dependantes de l'experience apparaissent apres que des mâles matures aient courtises de jeunesExpand
The role of female movement in the sexual behavior ofDrosophila melanogaster
NormalDrosophila melanogaster males rapidly react to changes in the mobility of mutantshibirets females by performing less courtship when the females are paralyzed and by courting movingshibiretsExpand
quick-to-court, a Drosophila mutant with elevated levels of sexual behavior, is defective in a predicted coiled-coil protein.
Remarkably little is known about the molecular mechanisms that drive sexual behavior. We have identified a new gene, quick-to-court (qtc), whose mutations cause males to show high levels of male-maleExpand
Identification of Brain Sites Controlling Female Receptivity in Mosaics of DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER.
We have identified cells in the brain of Drosophila melanogaster that are required to be of female genotype for receptivity to copulation with males. To do this, we determined experimental conditionsExpand
The effect of transformer, doublesex and intersex mutations on the sexual behavior of Drosophila melanogaster.
We have identified the effects of genes that regulate sex determination on female-specific tissues in the abdomen that produce sex pheromones and parts of the central nervous system that functionExpand
Development of behavioral competence in youngDrosophila melanogaster adults
We have monitored the ontogeny of several behaviors performed by young Drosophila melanogasteradults. Very young flies are less active than older flies and are less responsive to gravity, light, anExpand
Effects of amiloride on taste responses of Drosophila melanogaster adults and larvae.
Abstract Amiloride, a diuretic that blocks epithelial sodium channels, affects taste-cell responses to salts and sweet stimuli in most vertebrates. This suggests that amiloride-sensitive sodiumExpand
