    Female mice ultrasonically interact with males during courtship displays

    Joshua P Neunuebel et al.
    A microphone array enables the vocal contribution of each socially interacting individual to be quantified, and reveals that vocalizations are exchanged between the sexes during mouse courtship.

    Central neural circuitry mediating courtship song perception in male Drosophila

    Chuan Zhou et al.
    Anatomical, behavioral and physiological evidence suggests that the aPN1-vPN1-pC1 pathway serves as a labeled line for the processing and transformation of courtship song in male Drosophila.

    Physiological constraint on acrobatic courtship behavior underlies rapid sympatric speciation in bearded manakins

    Meredith C Miles et al.
    Skeletal muscle performance sets the course of rapid speciation by defining the evolutionary trajectory of reproductive behavior.

    Persistent activity in a recurrent circuit underlies courtship memory in Drosophila

    Xiaoliang Zhao et al.
    Persistent activity of dopaminergic neurons in a mushroom recurrent circuit lays the foundation for courtship memory in Drosophila.

    Acoustic duetting in Drosophila virilis relies on the integration of auditory and tactile signals

    Kelly M LaRue et al.
    Quantitative behavioral assays and modeling show that acoustic duetting in Drosophila during courtship relies on the detection of precisely timed cues via multiple sensory channels.

    Select forelimb muscles have evolved superfast contractile speed to support acrobatic social displays

    Matthew J Fuxjager et al.
    In situ measurements of muscular twitch speed reveal one of the fastest vertebrate limb muscles on record, which evolved in association with extravagant courtship displays that include rapid limb movements.

    Identification of octopaminergic neurons that modulate sleep suppression by male sex drive

    Daniel R Machado et al.
    The balance between sleep and sex drives determines whether male flies sleep or court, and a subset of octopaminergic neurons interact with the Fruitless-expressing courtship circuit to suppress sleep for sustained courtship.
    1. Neuroscience

    Integrated action of pheromone signals in promoting courtship behavior in male mice

    Sachiko Haga-Yamanaka et al.
    Identification of two classes of mouse vomeronasal receptors for female pheromone cues suggests distinct gating mechanisms in pheromone-triggered reproductive behaviors.
    1. Neuroscience

    Excitation and inhibition onto central courtship neurons biases Drosophila mate choice

    Benjamin R Kallman et al.
    Pheromones activate excitatory and inhibitory pathways that are integrated to guide mating decisions in Drosophila melanogaster.
