Abstract:
The peripheral olfactory system of the Drosophila larva consists of a pair of dorsal organs each comprising 21 olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs). Each OSN expresses one or two classes of olfactory receptor (OR) in addition to the ubiquitously expressed protein OR83b. The neuronal wiring from OSNs to higher brain centres in Drosophila larvae mirrors the organization seen in higher organisms but is reduced numerically to a simple 1:1:1 connectivity. Presented here is the first in situ electrophysiological data for individual larval OSNs.
