The Johnston's organs (JO) of mosquitoes are the most complex mechanosensitive organs yet found in insects. [...] Key Result Most of the neurons are tuned to 190-270 Hz, which corresponds to the difference between male and female flight tones. Axons of the JO sensory units propagate graded amplified receptor potentials rather than all-or-none action potentials, are grouped into pairs or triplets and often respond in anti-phase to each other. Some features of the mosquito auditory system suggest an analogy to…Expand
