Maturation of odor representation in the honeybee antennal lobe

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

Description

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]
