P-06 The Impact of Male-exposure in the Neuronal Response of the L3 Auditory Interneuron to Model Calls

Description

The L3 auditory neuron in female cricket Acheta domesticus responds to phonotactically attractive calls with decrement: a reduction in the number of action potentials in response to consecutive sound pulses within a chirp. Such unique response has been reported only in virgin females (Atkins et al, 1989). This study evaluates the response of the L3 in male-exposed females to determine whether they respond to auditory stimuli differently from those exhibited by virgin female crickets. Preliminary data indicate that L3 in young exposed female crickets responds with different levels of decrement as those reported for virgin females.
