- Different thresholds for detection and discrimination of odors in the honey bee (Apis mellifera)Geraldine A Wright
Department of Entomology, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio 43210, USA
Chem Senses 29:127-35. 2004....
- Variation in complex olfactory stimuli and its influence on odour recognitionGeraldine A Wrigh
Department of Entomology, Ohio State University, 318 West 12th Avenue, Columbus, OH 43235, USA
Proc Biol Sci 271:147-52. 2004..These results have implications for the way that all animals perceive and attend to features of olfactory stimuli...
- Intensity and the ratios of compounds in the scent of snapdragon flowers affect scent discrimination by honeybees (Apis mellifera)Geraldine A Wright
Department Entomology, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 43210, USA
J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol 191:105-14. 2005..Our results show that honeybees are capable of using all of the floral volatiles to discriminate subtle differences in scent...
- Odour concentration affects odour identity in honeybeesGeraldine A Wright
Ohio State University, Mathematical Biosciences Institute, 231 W 18th Avenue, Columbus, OH 43210, USA
Proc Biol Sci 272:2417-22. 2005..We argue that this could be a natural consequence of odour coding and suggest how an 'intensity feature' might be useful to the honeybee in natural odour detection and discrimination...
- Ability of honeybee, Apis mellifera, to detect and discriminate odors of varieties of canola (Brassica rapa and Brassica napus) and snapdragon flowers (Antirrhinum majus)Geraldine A Wright
Department of Entomology, Ohio State University, Columbus 43210 1220, USA
J Chem Ecol 28:721-40. 2002..Our study suggests that both intensity and odor quality affect the ability of honeybees to differentiate among floral perfumes...
- Molecular features of odorants systematically influence slow temporal responses across clusters of coordinated antennal lobe units in the moth Manduca sextaKevin C Daly
Department of Entomology, The Ohio State University, 400 Aronoff Laboratory, 318 W 12th Ave, Columbus, OH 43210, USA
J Neurophysiol 92:236-54. 2004..The distance during this period was also a function of systematic differences in molecular features. Results of this Euclidian analysis thus directly correlate to previous behavioral studies of stimulus generalization in M. sexta...
- Acute ethanol ingestion produces dose-dependent effects on motor behavior in the honey bee (Apis mellifera)Ian S Maze
Department of Entomology, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 43210, USA
J Insect Physiol 52:1243-53. 2006..We predict that the honey bee will prove to be an excellent model system for studying the influence of ethanol on the neural mechanisms underlying behavior...
- Computational model of the cAMP-mediated sensory response and calcium-dependent adaptation in vertebrate olfactory receptor neuronsDaniel P Dougherty
Mathematical Biosciences Institute, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 43210, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:10415-20. 2005..The proposed model accurately predicts the receptor-current response of the neuron to brief and prolonged odorant exposure and is able to produce the adaptation observed under repeated or sustained stimulation...
