Finding the target: How timing is critical in establishing an olfactory wiring map

April 11, 2014 12:35 pm | by EurekAlert! | News | Comments

The human nose expresses nearly 400 odorant receptors, which allow us to distinguish a large number of scents. In mice the number of odor receptors is closer to 1000. Each olfactory neuron displays only a single type of receptor and all neurons with the same receptors are connected to the same spot....

Antennae help flies 'cruise' in gusty winds

April 11, 2014 12:32 pm | by EurekAlert! | News | Comments

Due to its well-studied genome and small size, the humble fruit fly has been used as a model to study hundreds of human health issues ranging from Alzheimer's to obesity. However, Michael Dickinson, Esther M. and Abe M. Zarem Professor of Bioengineering at Caltech, is more interested in the flies themselves....
