Antennal Lobe Structure
The anatomical organisation of the first-order olfactory brain areas in insects, the antennal lobes (ALs), are described and will be compared between different insect species.
Function and morphology of the antennal lobe: new developments.
Data is compiled from areas where substantial progress has been made during recent years: structure-function relationships within the glomerular array, integration and blend specificity, time coding and the effects of neuroactive substances and hormones on antennal lobe processing.
The Antennal Lobe of Orthoptera – Anatomy and Evolution
Using a recent molecular phylogeny of the Orthoptera, the occurrence of glomerular characteristics is mapped to infer the evolution of antennal lobe structures in orthopterans and the functional implications are discussed.
Chemical communication in heliothine moths
The axonal arborizations of different physiological receptor neuron types involved in the detection of the pheromone blend do not display a clearcut morphological separation into different glomeruli in the MGC; a separation between neurons detecting attracting and repelling odours was, however, present.
Plasticity of olfactory‐guided behaviour and its neurobiological basis: lessons from moths and locusts
In moths and locusts, age and juvenile hormone changed the behavioural responses to pheromones, and changes in the central nervous system were slow under the influence of juvenile hormone (days) or fast after mating (minutes).
Central projections of olfactory receptor neurons from single antennal and palpal sensilla in mosquitoes.
Glomerular representation of plant volatiles and sex pheromone components in the antennal lobe of the female Spodoptera littoralis.
We studied the projection patterns of antennal lobe (AL) interneurones sensitive to plant volatiles and female-produced sex pheromone components in the female moth, Spodoptera littoralis. Ten…
Experience-based modulation of behavioural responses to plant volatiles and other sensory cues in insect herbivores.
This review will focus upon behavioural changes in holometabolous insect herbivores during host plant choice and localization of mating partners, modulated by experience to sensory cues.
Synergism of pheromone and host‐plant volatile blends in the attraction of Grapholita molesta males
The observed enhanced male attraction to mixtures of pheromone and plant volatiles will facilitate the development of lures for G. molesta adult flight monitoring.
Plasticity in Insect Olfaction: To Smell or Not to Smell?
Forms of olfactory plasticity that have contributed to the evolutionary success of insects and have provided them with remarkable tools to adapt to their ever-changing environment are described.
