Complex external stimuli such as odorants are believed to be internally represented in the brain by spatiotemporal activity patterns of extensive neuronal ensembles. These activity patterns can be recorded by optical imaging techniques. However, optical imaging with conventional fluorescence dyes usually does not allow for resolving the activity of biologically defined groups of neurons. Therefore, specifically targeting reporter molecules to neuron populations of common genetic identity is an… Expand
Calcium Imaging of Neural Activity in the Olfactory System of Drosophila
TLDR
This review provides a guideline for optically monitoring the spatiotemporal neuronal activity evoked by odorants in the Drosophila brain. Expand
Calcium imaging of odor-evoked responses in the Drosophila antennal lobe.
TLDR
The preparation and analysis methods to measure odor-evoked responses in the Drosophila antennal lobe using G-CaMP are described and the animal preparation is minimally invasive and can be adapted to imaging using wide-field fluorescence, confocal and two-photon microscopes. Expand
Monitoring Neural Activity with Genetically Encoded Ca2+ Indicators
TLDR
This chapter will review how genetic targeting methods can be used in Drosophila to monitor neural Ca2+ activity in vivo in order to study how individual neurons or neuronal ensembles encode stimulus information. Expand

TLDR
This new technique will significantly enhance the usefulness of the Drosophila model system, allowing a more quantitative examination of the mechanisms involved in olfactory learning and memory. Expand
In Vivo Imaging of Neuronal Activity by Targeted Expression of a Genetically Encoded Probe in the Mouse
TLDR
Targeted expression of synapto-pHluorin to olfactory sensory neurons in mouse will permit the analysis of previously inaccessible neuronal populations and chronic imaging from genetically identified neurons in vivo. Expand
Odor-Induced Multi-Level Inhibitory Maps in Drosophila
TLDR
It is demonstrated that odor-evoked inhibition carried by Cl- influx is present both in sensory neurons and second-order projection neurons (PNs), and is characterized by stereotypic, odor-specific patterns. Expand
Optical calcium imaging in the nervous system of Drosophila melanogaster.
TLDR
Drosophila provides an excellent model organism to combine genetic expression systems with optical calcium imaging in order to investigate principles of sensory coding, neuronal plasticity, and processing of neuronal information underlying behavior. Expand
Physiology and genetics of odor perception in Drosophila
TLDR
The Drosophila olfactory system studies are useful in obtaining complete wiring maps for the processing of behaviorally relevant stimuli and the development of molecular genetic techniques for the expression of functional probes has helped in increasing the understanding of the coding properties of specific neurons.

The olfactory sensory map in Drosophila.
TLDR
In vivo electrophysiology has been used to decode the ligand response profiles of most of the ORs, providing insight into the initial logic of olfactory coding in the fly. Expand

Target neuron prespecification in the olfactory map of Drosophila
TLDR
It is demonstrated that projection neurons are prespecified by lineage and birth order to form synapses with specific incoming ORN axons, and therefore to carry specific olfactory information, which could be used to hardwire the fly's Olfactory system, enabling stereotyped behavioural responses to odorants. Expand
Genetic Manipulation of the Odor-Evoked Distributed Neural Activity in the Drosophila Mushroom Body
TLDR
It is revealed that odors evoke diffused neural activities in the MB and the spatial pattern of the distributed neural activity may contribute to coding of odor information at the second relay of the olfactory system. Expand
Role of inhibition for temporal and spatial odor representation in olfactory output neurons: a calcium imaging study.
TLDR
The results show the presence of two separate inhibitory networks: one is GABAergic and modulates overall AL activity, the other is PTX-insensitive and glomerulus-specific, which selectively inhibit glomeruli with overlapping response profiles, in a way akin to "lateral" inhibition in other sensory systems. Expand
The role of glomeruli in the neural representation of odours: results from optical recording studies.
TLDR
What optical recording of odour-evoked glomerular activity patterns has revealed so far is reviewed, and the necessary next steps are discussed, with emphasis on the honeybee. Expand
Visualizing an Olfactory Sensory Map
TLDR
A genetic approach is developed to visualize axons from olfactory sensory neurons expressing a given odorant receptor, as they project to the Olfactory bulb, which provides direct support for a model in which a topographic map of receptor activation encodes odor quality in the ofactory bulb. Expand
Spatial Representation of the Glomerular Map in the Drosophila Protocerebrum
TLDR
In the fruit fly, Drosophila, olfactory sensory neurons expressing a given receptor project to spatially invariant loci in the antennal lobe to create a topographic map of receptor activation, which is represented in higher sensory centers in the brain by projection neurons that innervate the same glomerulus.

Representation of the Glomerular Olfactory Map in the Drosophila Brain
TLDR
Systematic single-cell tracing of projection neurons that send dendrites to specific glomeruli in the Drosophila antennal lobe revealed their stereotypical axon branching patterns and terminal fields in the lateral horn, allowing integration of olfactory information. Expand
Spatiotemporal structure of olfactory inputs to the mushroom bodies.
TLDR
This short review will summarize the recent results from the laboratory in an attempt to provide a description of the spatiotemporal structure of olfactory inputs to the MBs and their intrinsic neurons, and speculate on the possible role of MB circuits for Olfactory processing. Expand
Neuroblast ablation in Drosophila P[GAL4] lines reveals origins of olfactory interneurons.
TLDR
Early larval HU application to P[GAL4] strains that label specific neuron types enabled us to identify the origins of the two major classes of interneurons in the olfactory system and suggested that differentiated RI are present at the larval stage already and may be retained through metamorphosis.
