With the focus on dopaminergic neurons, I conducted two experiments with two different driver lines to see how the naive gustatory behavior in Drosophila larvae is affected.
The first cross I tested was R58E02-Gal4 x UAS-ChR2-XXL, which gave me the following results:
As seen in the figures, there was no effect under blue light.
For the second experiment I crossed TH-Gal4 x UAS-ChR2-XXL with these results:
With this experiment, there was an effect on gustatory behavior as there is a clear significant difference between the experimental group and the control group.
