  1. pmc A circuit supporting concentration-invariant odor perception in Drosophila
    Kenta Asahina
    Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior, The Rockefeller University, 1230 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065, USA
    J Biol 8:9. 2009
    ..We investigated how subsets of larval OSNs with overlapping but distinct response properties cooperate to mediate perception of a given odorant across a range of concentrations...
  2. pmc The survival advantage of olfaction in a competitive environment
    Kenta Asahina
    Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior, The Rockefeller University, 1230 York Avenue, New York, New York 10065, USA
    Curr Biol 18:1153-5. 2008
    ..We investigated the extent to which the olfactory system confers a survival advantage on Drosophila larvae foraging for food under conditions of limited resources and competition from other larvae...

    Elane Fishilevich
    Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior, The Rockefeller University, 1230 York Avenue, New York, New York 10021, USA
    Curr Biol 15:2086-96. 2005
    ..The extent to which a single OR contributes to chemotaxis behavior is not known. We investigated this question in Drosophila larvae, which represent a powerful genetic system to analyze the contribution of individual OSNs to odor coding...
