Description

Selective phonotaxis by female crickets has been shown to be variable. Mechanisms which underlie such behavioral variability are being studied. Juvenile Hormone III is a neuromodulator that has been shown to increase selectivity in phonotactic behavior of female crickets. In an attempt to further explore its effects on the behavioral responses of our model, experiments have been performed with Chelerythrine Chloride that is known to have an opposite effect of Juvenile Hormone III. This poster reports on the effect of Chelerythrine Chloride on behavioral responses in female crickets Acheta Domesticus.
