Description

In this reference, 35 authors contribute their expertise to create a synopsis of the most current methods used to study the specialized sensory systems of insects. The techniques covered include anatomical pathway tracing, electrophysiological recording, genetic and pharmacological manipulators, computational modeling, and behavioral observations.

Texte du rabat

Written by recognized experts in sensory biology, Methods in Insect Sensory Neuroscience synthesizes the latest information and reviews the most current methods for studying the specialized sensory systems of insects. Bridging the gap between experimentalists and theorists, the book covers a wide range of techniques, including anatomical pathway tracing, electrophysiological recording, genetic and pharmacological manipulations, computational modeling, and behavioral observations. Each chapter discusses the most challenging questions facing sensory neuroscience today and provides a unique synopsis of the developments that are driving the field forward.

Résumé
Insects are among the most diverse and adaptable organisms on Earth. This book showcases the tremendous variety of methods that are available to study the sensory capabilities of insects. It covers the spectrum of sensory modalities in insects, from vision and audition, to chemoreception and multimodal processing.
