Two Interdependent TRPV Channel Subunits, Inactive and Nanchung, Mediate Hearing in Drosophila
Hearing in Drosophila depends on the transduction of antennal vibration into receptor potentials by ciliated sensory neurons in Johnston's organ, the antennal chordotonal organ. We previously foundExpand

Differential roles of the fan-shaped body and the ellipsoid body in Drosophila visual pattern memory.
The central complex is a prominent structure in the Drosophila brain. Visual learning experiments in the flight simulator, with flies with genetically altered brains, revealed that two groups ofExpand

Morphological characterization of single fan-shaped body neurons in Drosophila melanogaster
The fan-shaped body is the largest substructure of the central complex in Drosophila melanogaster. Two groups of large-field neurons that innervate the fan-shaped body, viz., F1 and F5 neurons, haveExpand

Unsupervised Representation Learning With Long-Term Dynamics for Skeleton Based Action Recognition
We explore an unsupervised representation learning approach for the first time to capture the long-term global motion dynamics in skeleton sequences. Expand

Visual pattern memory requires foraging function in the central complex of Drosophila.
The role of the foraging (for) gene, which encodes a cyclic guanosine-3',5'-monophosphate (cGMP)-dependent protein kinase (PKG), in food-search behavior in Drosophila has been intensively studied.Expand

Two Pairs of Neurons in the Central Brain Control Drosophila Innate Light Preference
Light-Hating Target Young larvae of the fruit fly Drosophila like to hide in the dark. Older larvae nearing pupation are less timorous. Gong et al. (p. 499; see the Perspective by Vogt and Desplan)Expand

The novel long non-coding RNA CRG regulates Drosophila locomotor behavior
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) that have no protein-coding capacity make up a large proportion of the transcriptome of various species. Many lncRNAs are expressed within the animal central nervousExpand

Operant visual learning and memory in Drosophila mutants dunce, amnesiac and radish.
Learning and memory of Drosophila mutants dunce, amnesiac and radish which were isolated originally from the classical olfactory learning paradigm are analyzed in an operant visual learning paradigm.Expand

Cold-sensing regulates Drosophila growth through insulin-producing cells
Across phyla, body size is linked to climate. For example, rearing fruit flies at lower temperatures results in bigger body sizes than those observed at higher temperatures. The underlying molecularExpand

γ‐glutamyl transpeptidase 1 specifically suppresses green‐light avoidance via GABAA receptors in Drosophila
Drosophila larvae innately show light avoidance behavior. Compared with robust blue‐light avoidance, larvae exhibit relatively weaker green‐light responses. In our previous screening for genesExpand
