...Julia Machon; Juliette Ravaux; Magali Zbinden; Philippe Lucas ABSTRACT Antennular chemoreception in aquatic decapods is well studied via the recording of single chemoreceptor neuron activity in the antennule, but global responses of the antennule (or antennae in insects) by electroantennography...

...Matthew A. Reidenbach; M. A. R. Koehl SUMMARY Odors are dispersed across aquatic habitats by turbulent water flow as filamentous, intermittent plumes. Many crustaceans sniff (take discrete samples of ambient water and the odors it carries) by flicking their olfactory antennules. We used planar...

... of the antennules, between the flagellum and the brain, is somewhat higher than the corresponding conduction velocity of the same axons in the flagellum, especially for those whose flagellar conduction velocity is between 1 and 3 m s –1 , even though there is no net change in axonal diameter within this part...

... antennule of the spiny lobster, Panulirus argus , as a system to study how the morphology, orientation, and motion of sensilla-bearing appendages affects the small-scale water flow within the hair array. We tested whether antennule flicking enables lobsters to take discrete odor samples by measuring flow...

The latency of the initial phase of the response to water was approximately half as long as the latency of the response...

...J. A. Goldman; S. N. Patek SUMMARY Most studies of lobster chemoreception have focused on the model systems of Panulirus argus (Palinuridae) and Homarus americanus (Nephropidae). We compare antennule morphology across lobsters and conduct the first kinematic study of antennule flicking...
