How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
In Drosophila, prior fighting experience influences the outcome of later contests: losing a fight increases the probability of losing second contests, thereby revealing "loser" effects that involve learning and memory. In these experiments, to generate and quantify the behavioral changes observed as consequences of losing fights, we developed a new...

Significance How high levels of aggression are generated in any organism is poorly understood, especially the genetic basis. Analyses of a hyperaggressive line of fruit flies (Bullies) generated by a genetic selection approach revealed a loss of the aggressive phenotype when animals were reared at a lower temperature. This effect offered an opportu...

A transcription factor helps young flies to sleep longer by delaying the maturation of a neural network that controls sleep.
Article
Full-text available
Recent methodological advances in studying large scale animal movements have let researchers gather rich datasets from behaving animals. Often collected in small sample sizes due to logistical constraints, these datasets are however, ideal for multivariate explorations into behavioral complexity. In behavioral studies of domestic dogs, although aut...

Full-text available
Aggression is a complex social behavior that remains poorly understood. Drosophila has become a powerful model system to study the underlying biology of aggression but lack of high throughput screening and analysis continues to be a barrier for comprehensive mutant and circuit discovery. Here we developed the Divider Assay, a simplified experimenta...
Preprint
Full-text available
A defining feature of sleep is its homeostatic control, which is most clearly expressed as increased sleep after forced wakefulness. Drosophila has served as a powerful model system for understanding the homeostatic control of sleep and ongoing work continues to be an important complement to studies in mammals and other vertebrate models. Neverthel...
Article
Full-text available
Aggressive behavior in Drosophila melanogaster is composed of the sequential expression of stereotypical behavioral patterns (for analysis see1). This complex behavior is influenced by genetic, hormonal and environmental factors. As in many organisms, previous fighting experience influences the fighting strategy of flies and the outcome of later co...

Considerable efforts have been made to investigate how homing pigeons (Columba livia f. domestica) are able to return to their loft from distant, unfamiliar sites while the mechanisms underlying navigation in familiar territory have received less attention. With the recent advent of global positioning system (GPS) data loggers small enough to be ca...
