Peripheral events underlying plant odour quality discrimination in the Colorado beetle were investigated. Responses to saturated and unsaturated C-6 alcohols and aldehydes (“green leaf” volatiles) and to other plant compounds were recorded extracellularly. The olfactory receptors could respond by inhibition and/or excitation; inhibition was especially observed at the higher stimulus intensities. Variations in the response patterns were analyzed for a number of receptors constituting a… CONTINUE READING
