Looking for the DA & OA neurons involved in phototactic flexibility

on Monday, September 21st, 2015 2:41 | by Axel Gorostiza

After using TH-G4 and TDC2-G4 to prove that dopamine and octopamine are involved in phototactic switch after wing clipping, I decided to find which neurons in particular are playing this particular role. Therefore, I started a few small screens with the GAL4s and LexAs available for these groups of neurons. I crossed the drivers to shibire to assess their role. For every graph blue means RT, and red means 32°C.
