• Interchangeable Punishments During Aversive Conditioning in Drosophila 

    Robinson, Brooks G.; Khurana, Sukant; Nguyen, Andrew; Chuang, Tammy; Young, Melvin; Yu, Jun; Hooten, Jeff; Atkinson, Nigel S. (2013-11)
    Using Drosophila melanogaster larvae we asked whether distinct aversive stimuli have a common neural representation during associative learning. We tested the interchangeability of heat shock and electroshock punishments ...
  • Mechanisms of benzyl alcohol tolerance in Drosophila melanogaster 

    Alhasan, Yazan Mahmoud (2009-12)
    Proper neuronal function requires the preservation of appropriate neural excitability. An adaptive increase in neural excitability after exposure to agents that depress neuronal signaling blunts the sedative drug effects ...
