1. Studies were made of olfactory receptor cells situated in the pit organs (sensilla coeloconica) on the antennae of the migratory locust (Locusta migratoria). The reactions of single cells to 370 stepwise altered compounds have been investigated quantitatively with electrophysiological methods. 2. The stimuli were given by a syringe-olfactometer which was calibrated by gaschromatographic and radiometric methods. The average number of molecules (stimulus quantity N 0) hitting the area of the… CONTINUE READING
