- Species-specific effects of herbivory on the oviposition behavior of the moth Manduca sextaCarolina E Reisenman
Department of Neuroscience, University of Arizona, 1040 E Fourth St, Gould Simpson 611, Tucson, AZ 85721 0077, USA
J Chem Ecol 39:76-89. 2013..We propose that the observed differential effects of herbivory on oviposition choice are due to different characteristics (i.e., mutually beneficial or parasitic) of the insect-plant interaction...
- The distribution and abundance of triatomine insects, potential vectors of Chagas Disease, in a metropolitan area in southern Arizona, United StatesCarolina E Reisenman
Department of Neuroscience, University of Arizona, Tucson, 85721 0077, USA
J Med Entomol 49:1254-61. 2012..To our knowledge, this study is the first comprehensive multi-year analysis of triatomine distribution and abundance in the U.S., providing data that allow inferences about risks to human health...
- Feeding and defecation behavior of Triatoma rubida (Uhler, 1894) (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) under laboratory conditions, and its potential role as a vector of Chagas disease in Arizona, USACarolina E Reisenman
Department of Neuroscience, College of Science, University of Arizona, Tucson, 85721 0077, USA
Am J Trop Med Hyg 85:648-56. 2011..e., while likely on or near the host. These results indicate that T. rubida potentially could transmit T. cruzi to humans...
- Local interneuron diversity in the primary olfactory center of the moth Manduca sextaCarolina E Reisenman
Department of Neuroscience, University of Arizona, Tucson, 85721, USA
J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol 197:653-65. 2011..These results show that, as observed in other insects, LNs are diverse, which likely determines the complexity of the inhibitory network that regulates AL output...
- Antagonistic effects of floral scent in an insect-plant interactionCarolina E Reisenman
Department of Neuroscience, College of Science, University of Arizona, 1040 East Fourth Street, Tucson, AZ 85721 0077, USA

- Infection of kissing bugs with Trypanosoma cruzi, Tucson, Arizona, USACarolina E Reisenman
Department of Neuroscience, College of Science, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona 85721 0077, USA
Emerg Infect Dis 16:400-5. 2010..Although many factors may contribute to the lack of reported cases in Arizona, these results indicate that the risk for infection in this region may be higher than previously thought...
- Neuroethology of oviposition behavior in the moth Manduca sextaCarolina E Reisenman
Division of Neurobiology, Arizona Research Laboratories, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona 85721 0077, USA
Ann N Y Acad Sci 1170:462-7. 2009..Here we describe results from chemical-ecological, neurophysiological, and behavioral experiments aimed at understanding the neural mechanisms that control oviposition behavior in M. sexta...
- Inhibitory interactions among olfactory glomeruli do not necessarily reflect spatial proximityCarolina E Reisenman
Arizona Research Laboratories, Division of Neurobiology, University of Arizona, PO Box 210077, Tucson, AZ 85721 0077, USA
J Neurophysiol 100:554-64. 2008..Similar results were obtained in female PNs recorded in proximity to female-specific glomeruli. Our findings indicate that inhibitory interactions among glomeruli are widespread and independent of their spatial proximity...
- Chemosensory selectivity of output neurons innervating an identified, sexually isomorphic olfactory glomerulusCarolina E Reisenman
Division of Neurobiology, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona 85721 0077, USA
J Neurosci 25:8017-26. 2005....
- Spectral sensitivity of the photonegative reaction of the blood-sucking bug Triatoma infestans (Heteroptera: Reduviidae)Carolina E Reisenman
Laboratorio de Fisiologia de Insectos, Departamento de Biodiversidad y Biologia Experimental, Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina
J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol 192:39-44. 2006..These findings indicate that the visual system of T. infestans is sensitive to broader regions of the spectrum than those previously reported...
- Enantioselectivity of projection neurons innervating identified olfactory glomeruliCarolina E Reisenman
Arizona Research Laboratories, Division of Neurobiology, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona 85721 0077, USA
