Maturation of odor representation in the honeybee antennal lobe

Wang, Shunpeng; Zhang, Shao Wu; Sato, Katsushige; Srinivasan, Mandyam V


The antennal lobe (AL) is the first center for processing odors in the insect brain, as is the olfactory bulb (OB) in vertebrates. Both the AL and the OB have a characteristic glomerular structure; odors sensed by olfactory receptor neurons are represented by patterns of glomerular activity. Little is known about when and how an odor begins to be perceived in a developing brain. We address this question by using calcium imaging to monitor odor-evoked neural activity in the ALs of bees of...[Show more]
