    Gustatory-mediated avoidance of bacterial lipopolysaccharides via TRPA1 activation in Drosophila

    Alessia Soldano et al.
    Fruit flies can taste and avoid food contaminated with a bacterial toxin using the same channel protein that functions in humans as sensor of noxious chemical stimuli.

    optoPAD, a closed-loop optogenetics system to study the circuit basis of feeding behaviors

    José-Maria Moreira et al.
    The optoPAD system combines real-time behavioral analysis with optogenetic manipulations to study how animals adapt to dynamic gustatory environments and to identify the circuit basis of feeding.

    A complex peripheral code for salt taste in Drosophila

    Alexandria H Jaeger et al.
    Unlike other taste modalities, the Drosophila taste system encodes salt taste combinatorially across multiple sensory neuron classes, which combine to produce behavioural valence and plasticity.

    Sucrose intensity coding and decision-making in rat gustatory cortices

    Esmeralda Fonseca et al.
    The neural representation of perceived sucrose intensity was contained in the firing rate and spike-timing of a 'small' population of neurons distributed across the Insula and Orbitofrontal taste cortices.

    A gustatory receptor tuned to the steroid plant hormone brassinolide in Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae)

    Ke Yang et al.
    The gustatory receptor PxylGr34 is tuned to the steroid plant hormone brassinolide and mediates the deterrent effects of brassinolide on feeding and ovipositing behaviors in Plutella xylostella.

    Associative learning changes cross-modal representations in the gustatory cortex

    Roberto Vincis, Alfredo Fontanini
    Cross-modal stimuli are represented in the primary gustatory cortex according to their sensory identity, associability and predictive value.

    Reverse-correlation analysis of navigation dynamics in Drosophila larva using optogenetics

    Luis Hernandez-Nunez et al.
    Optogenetic stimulation of odor- and taste-sensing neurons of the fruit fly larva combined with reverse-correlation analysis has been used to build mathematical models that predict navigational behavior.
    1. Neuroscience

    Bitter taste receptors confer diverse functions to neurons

    Rebecca Delventhal, John R Carlson
    Expression of Drosophila bitter receptors in taste neurons produced increased, decreased, or novel responses, supporting a model in which the response profile is determined by activation, inhibition, or competition among receptors.
    1. Neuroscience

    Internal states drive nutrient homeostasis by modulating exploration-exploitation trade-off

    Verónica María Corrales-Carvajal et al.
    A quantitative video tracking analysis reveals that to gain the nutrients they need, flies change their decisions to exploit foods with different nutrient contents and explore the environment according to their internal amino acid and reproductive states.

    Evolutionary shifts in taste coding in the fruit pest Drosophila suzukii

    Hany KM Dweck et al.
    The evolutionary transition of the agricultural pest Drosophila suzukii to egg laying on ripe fruits was paralleled with several gustatory innovations.
