Intensity coded octopaminergic modulation of aversive crawling behavior in Drosophila melanogaster larvae
Activation and modulation of sensory-guided behaviors by biogenic amines assure appropriate adaptations to changes in an insect's environment. Given its genetic tool kit Drosophila melanogaster represents an excellent model organism to study larger networks of neurons by optophysiological methods. Here, we studied stationary crawling movements of 3rd instar larvae and revealed how the octopaminergic VUM neuron system reacts during crawling behavior and tactile stimulations. We conducted calciumdoi:10.1101/2020.09.04.281022 fatcat:zygwetnnkzc7flhutwqaw5arta
