Parallel somatotopic maps of gustatory and mechanosensory neurons in the central nervous system of an insect
Relatively little is still known about the sense of taste, or contact chemoreception, compared with other sensory modalities, despite its importance to many aspects of animal behaviour. The centralExpand

Dopaminergic modulation of phase reversal in desert locusts
Phenotypic plasticity allows animals to modify their behavior, physiology, and morphology to adapt to environmental change. The global pest, the desert locust, shows two extreme phenotypes; aExpand

Intracellular Nitric Oxide Mediates Neuroproliferative Effect of Neuropeptide Y on Postnatal Hippocampal Precursor Cells*
Background: Neuropeptide Y and nitric oxide are key regulators of adult hippocampal neurogenesis. Results: Pharmacological inhibition of intracellular NO signaling pathways abolished neuropeptideExpand

Swimming performance and endurance of the Norway lobster Nephrops norvegicus
The swimming behaviour of the Norway lobster, Nephrops norvegicus (L.), was studied in the laboratory. The lobsters were stimulated to swim repeatedly until they failed to respond to a single tactileExpand

Escape Swimming in the Norway Lobster
We have used a multidisciplinary approach, using methods ranging from neurophysiology to field observations of natural behavior, to study the rapid backward escape-swimming of the Norway lobsterExpand

The swimming and orientation behaviour of the Norway lobster, Nephrops norvegicus (L.), in relation to trawling
Abstract A towed sledge, fitted with television and photographic cameras, was used to observe the behaviour of Nephrops norvegicus in relation to tidal currents in the sea and to an experimental rigExpand

Exposure to extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields alters the behaviour, physiology and stress protein levels of desert locusts
Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are present throughout the modern world and are derived from many man-made sources including overhead transmission lines. The risks of extremely-low frequency (ELF)Expand

Convergent chemical and electrical synaptic inputs from proprioceptive afferents onto an identified intersegmental interneuron in the crayfish.
Synaptic transmission between proprioceptive afferents from a chordotonal organ in the tailfan of the crayfish and an identified ascending interneuron, interneuron A, in the terminal abdominalExpand

The role of contact chemoreception in egg-laying behaviour of locusts.
Following selection of an appropriate egg-laying site desert locusts lay their eggs at depths in soil by digging their abdomen into the substrate using rhythmic movements of their abdomen and hard,Expand
