Cover ImageCover: A fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) is tethered to a steel rod and suspended in a flight simulator composed of a cylinder arena of green light-emitting diodes that display a panorama of moving stripes. The arena is equipped with a smooth odor plume. In this issue, Dawnis Chow and Mark Frye (pp. 2478−2485) demonstrate that corrective optomotor steering responses are influenced by olfactory signals during flight. An appetitive food odor enhances the salience of visual motion cues, increases the sensitivity to rotational optic flow and decreases the sensitivity to translational flow.

Celebrating 100 years of discovery
We are proud to be celebrating 100 years of discovery in Journal of Experimental Biology. Visit our centenary webpage to find out more about how we are marking this historic milestone.
Craig Franklin launches our centenary celebrations
Editor-in-Chief Craig Franklin reflects on 100 years of JEB and looks forward to our centenary celebrations, including a supplementary special issue, a new early-career researcher interview series and the launch of our latest funding initiatives.
Looking back on the first issue of JEB
Journal of Experimental Biology launched in 1923 as The British Journal of Experimental Biology. As we celebrate our centenary, we look back at that first issue and the zoologists publishing their work in the new journal.
Biology Communication Workshop: Engaging the world in the excitement of research
We are delighted to be sponsoring a Biology Communication Workshop for early-career researchers as part of JEB’s centenary celebrations. The workshop focuses on how to effectively communicate your science to other researchers and the public and takes place the day before the CSZ annual meeting, on 14 May 2023. Find out more and apply here.
Mexican fruit flies wave for distraction
Dinesh Rao and colleagues have discovered that Mexican fruit flies vanish in a blur in the eyes of predatory spiders when they wave their wings at the arachnids, buying the flies time to make their escape.
