Geographic distribution and light-dependent behavior in Drosophila

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

PMID: 5288242

Abstract

Drosophila species fall into three classes with respect to the effect of light on their reproductive behavior: Class I, species that mate equally well in light or darkness; Class II, those merely inhibited by darkness; Class III, species whose mating is blocked by darkness. Species in t...read more

Visual Perception

Visual perception and visual mental imagery, the faculty whereby we can revisualise a visual item from memory, have often been regarded as cognitive functions subserved by common mechanisms. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to visual perception.

Olfactory Navigation

This feed focuses on the impact of smell and space perception, as well as mechanisms that underlie navigation behaviour in animals. Here is the latest research on olfactory navigation.
