Instinctive behavior, such as avoiding certain odors, works directly on the lateral horn , and as such remains unaffected by deactivation of MB – V2 cells. Source: Stefanie Merker.. Alternative ways of memory processingIn this experiment, it was known that olfactory information is processed in the lateral horn of the fly’s brain. As a result of such processing, certain behavior, such as innate odor avoidance or approach, can be released. In contrast, the fungus body in place in the fly brain, in which a positive or negative value is indicated on the odor information. Here the form odorless with the negative perception of the electrical stimulus to an aversive odor. The neurobiologists the results that Nature Neuroscience Nature Neuroscience, showed that MB – V2 cells receive information from the mushroom bodies and that they in turn relay to the neurons in the lateral horn.
Fruit flies have the ability to remember. The brain of these tiny animals store different information and associations and can remember for a long time. Compared to the human brain, which has about 100 billion cells, the brain of the fruit fly. However, many of the fundamental principles are in both species. Retrieve the simple structure of the fly brain, with its modest hundred thousand cells, the scientists decode processes as they arise: in other words, at the single cell level.####This studies supports 14 Cooperative Research Agreement Number U50/CCU223671 by the Centers for Disease Control.
