About this book

Synthesizes the latest information on insect sensory systems by highlighting the tremendous breadth of methods used to study insect sensory systems: anatomical pathway tracing, electrophysiological recording (both single-cell and ensemble methods), genetic and pharmacological manipulations, computational modelling, and behavioural observations.
