Integration of olfactory information in the Colorado potato beetle brain.

The processing of olfactory information in the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata Say, was studied by recording responses of olfactory neurones intracellularly in the deutocerebrum. Response characteristics of neurones in this first relay station of the olfactory pathway were measured when the antennae were stimulated with five general green leaf volatiles, i.e. cis-3-hexen-1-ol, trans-2-hexenal, cis-3-hexenyl acetate, trans-2-hexen-1-ol and 1-hexanol. These compounds are part of the so-called green odour of potato, whose defined composition is essential for the beetle's host plant finding. The response spectra of deutocerebral neurones can be divided roughly into two classes: one class containing neurones which are not very specific for the tested compounds, and another class with highly specialized neurones. Their different responses to a potato leaf extract suggest two channels for the processing of olfactory information in the antennal lobe: one channel for the detection of the presence of green leaf odour components, and another one for an evaluation of the component ratios.[1]
