New publication from Bhandawat Lab


Schematic of a Novel Behavioral Assay

Seung-hye Jeong is the lead author on a new paper from the Bhandawat Lab, "Odor-identity Dependent Motor Programs Underlie Behavioral Responses to Odors."  Flies react to different food odors in a number of different ways, changing the number and duration of pauses as well as the speed of movement.  Experiments also demonstrated that certain classes of olfactory-response neurons are linked to particular kinds of movement, which was unexpected.  The paper was published in eLife, a non-proflt open-access journal supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Gemeinschaft, and the Wellcome Trust.
