The Neural Basis of Localized Thermosensation in the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta.Rimniceanu, Martha.
Thermosensing in animals is the ability to detect temperature or temperature changes. Survival often depends on being able to discriminate thermal events and to locate such stimuli. Although the molecular events associated with thermal transduction have been studied intensely, the encoding of thermal stimuli remains poorly understood at the level of neural circuits. Here, we describe for the first... read more
