...Somanshu Banerjee; Kazuyoshi Tsutsui; Chandra Mohini Chaturvedi ABSTRACT Reproductive performance of many avian species, including Japanese quail, is reported to be modulated by specific temporal phase relation of serotonergic and dopaminergic oscillations. Accordingly, it has been shown...

... the stress hormone corticosterone (CORT). Lines of Japanese quail ( Coturnix japonica )selected for divergent responses in levels of plasma CORT were used to test these hypotheses. Within each CORT response line (as well as in a control stock) we manipulated levels of testosterone in castrated quail...

...,and the mechanism by which birds might perceive polarised light is unknown. In this experiment, we trained Japanese quail and European starlings to discriminate stimuli differing in their polarisation pattern. Although both quail and starlings were able to discriminate stimuli in which the stimulus sub-components...

We have developed a UV `colour blindness' test, which we have given to a passerine(European starling) and a non-passerine (Japanese quail) species. Both species learnt to discriminate...
