  • No significant differences in ″task-relevant″ sensorimotor responses were detected for comparisons between control flies and mutants or other experimental genotypes (in each case, n = 8 for all the genotypes). All experiments were conducted at RT. OA, olfactory acuity; OCT, octanol; MCH, methylcyclohexanol; SR, shock reactivity; HS, a 30-min heat shock (37°C), followed by a 3-h recovery period.
