- The role of cuticular pheromones in courtship conditioning of Drosophila malesKathleen K Siwicki
Department of Biology, Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania 19081, USA
Learn Mem 12:636-45. 2005..Thus, 9-P can contribute significantly to the conditioned suppression of male courtship toward targets that express this pheromone...
- Fruitless, doublesex and the genetics of social behavior in Drosophila melanogasterKathleen K Siwicki
Department of Biology, Swarthmore College, 500 College Aveune, Swarthmore, PA 19081, USA
Curr Opin Neurobiol 19:200-6. 2009..Several recent articles refute this notion, however, demonstrating that at a minimum, both fruitless and doublesex are involved in establishing sexually dimorphic features of neural circuitry and behavior in fruit flies...
- Neuroanatomical studies of period gene expression in the hawkmoth, Manduca sextaSarah Wise
Biology Department, Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania 19081, USA
J Comp Neurol 447:366-80. 2002..sexta PER and rhythmic expression in glial cells, are reminiscent of the period gene of D. melanogaster, suggesting that some functions of per may be conserved in this lepidopteran species...
- Drosophila lacking dfmr1 activity show defects in circadian output and fail to maintain courtship interestThomas C Dockendorff
Department of Genetics, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
Neuron 34:973-84. 2002..Morphological analysis of neurons required for normal circadian behavior reveals subtle abnormalities, suggesting that defects in axonal pathfinding or synapse formation may cause the observed behavioral defects...
- Pharmacological rescue of synaptic plasticity, courtship behavior, and mushroom body defects in a Drosophila model of fragile X syndromeSean M J McBride
Section of Molecular Cardiology, Department of Medicine, Medical Scientist Training Program, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY 10461, USA
Neuron 45:753-64. 2005..They also raise the possibility that compounds having similar effects on metabotropic glutamate receptors may ameliorate cognitive and behavioral defects observed in Fragile X patients...
- Putative circadian pacemaker cells in the antenna of the hawkmoth Manduca sextaJulia Schuckel
Biology, Animal Physiology, Philipps University of Marburg, Karl von Frisch Strasse, 35043, Marburg, Germany
Cell Tissue Res 330:271-8. 2007..This evidence for the expression of per gene products suggests that the antenna of the hawkmoth contains endogenous circadian clocks...
