New reviews

The new Elsevier journal “Current Opinion in Insect Science” is proving a fruitful location for interesting review papers. Here are two more.

Namiki and Kanzaki provide a particularly interesting article. They detail aspects of the circuitry that controls zig-zagging in moths as they try to locate an odour plume. This circuit is conserved across insects and in this paper, it is suggested that this circuit (and the behaviour it controls) could be a fundamental part of orientation in insects.
