The origin and evolution of stereotyped patterns of macrochaetes on the nota of cyclorraphous Diptera
TLDR
The stereotyped, two-dimensional pattern of bristles on the thorax of Drosophila has been intensively investigated and is due to a precise spatial expression of proneural genes, so comparisons between them provide a good paradigm for the study of changes in gene regulation.
Mesosternal bristle number in a cosmopolitan drosophilid: an X-linked variable trait independent of sternopleural bristles
TLDR
Drosophila bristle number appears to be an excellent model for investigating developmental canalization at both the quantitative and the molecular level, and there was a bias, however, towards bristle loss, as shown by a liability (developmental map) analysis.
The kinase Sgg modulates temporal development of macrochaetes in Drosophila by phosphorylation of Scute and Pannier
TLDR
It is suggested that temporal control of ac-sc activity in cyclorraphous flies is likely to be regulated by permissive factors and might therefore not be encoded at the level ofac-sc gene sequences.
The functional organization of descending sensory-motor pathways in Drosophila
TLDR
The results show that the fly nerve cord is a highly organized, layered system of neuropils, an organization that reflects the fact that insects are capable of two largely independent means of locomotion – walking and fight – using distinct sets of appendages.
A neural progenitor mitotic wave is required for asynchronous axon outgrowth and morphology
TLDR
It is shown that the temporal order of progenitor divisions influences the birth order of sensory neurons, axon branching and impact on grooming behavior, and this data support the idea that developmental timing controls axon wiring neural diversity.
Quantification of order in point patterns
TLDR
It is shown that judgements are highly consistent across individuals and that the perceptual dimension has an interval scale structure, spanning roughly 10 just-noticeable differences between disorder and order, and designed a geometric algorithm that estimates order to an accuracy of half a jnd by quantifying the variability of the spaces between points.

The development and evolution of bristle patterns in Diptera.
TLDR
The spatial distribution of sensory bristles on the notum of different species of Diptera is compared and the complex genetic pathways regulating achaete-scute gene expression and bristle pattern in Drosophila melanogaster are reviewed.
scute expression in Calliphora vicina reveals an ancestral pattern of longitudinal stripes on the thorax of higher Diptera.
TLDR
It is found that sc in Calliphora is expressed in two longitudinal stripes on the medial scutum that prefigure the development of the rows of acrostichal and dorsocentral bristles, suggesting that a stripe-like expression pattern of sc may be an ancestral feature and may have preceded the evolution of proneural clusters of Drosophila.
Transcriptional heterochrony of scute and changes in bristle pattern between two closely related species of blowfly.
TLDR
Sc expression is described in Phormia terranovae, a species belonging to the family Calliphoridae that is closely related to C. vicina and it is found that spatial regulation is almost identical between P. terranvae and C. Vicina, in spite of their different bristle patterns.
Modality‐specific axonal projections in the CNS of the flies Phormia and Drosophila
TLDR
The anatomy of the sensory axons of two species of fly are examined and it is demonstrated that the location of the axonal projections in the CNS can be correlated with the modality they encode.
Projections of leg proprioceptors within the CNS of the fly Phormia in relation to the generalized insect ganglion
TLDR
An atlas of the fly CNS is provided and the locust is compared with the model for much insect neuroanatomy and neurophysiology to apply the results of this study to a broader range of insects.
From DNA to form: the achaete-scute complex.
TLDR
A deadlock had been reached in 1940, with no prospect of a solution, and it now appears that both theories contain an element of truth and reflect two different aspects of a finely engineered piece of genetic ma­ chinery.

Position‐specific central projections of mechanosensory neurons on the haltere of the blow fly, Calliphora vicina
TLDR
It is shown here that in the blow fly, Calliphora vicina, sensory afferents from the campaniform fields project to the thorax in a region‐specific manner, providing the anatomical basis for studying how mechanosensory information encoded by the complex fields on the base of the haltere is mapped onto different functional regions within the CNS.
Peripheral axonal pathway and cleaning behavior are correlated in Drosophila microchaetes.
TLDR
It is shown that the subdivision into four fasciculation groups is correlated to differences in the cleaning behavior elicited by stimulating the microchaetes.
Central projections of identified Drosophila sensory neurons in relation to their time of development
TLDR
There is a strict correlation between the time when a sensillum develops and the path its axon follows, and this time-related projection pattern remains stable in the face of a variety of genetically induced alterations in the precise number and location of sensilla.
