That is why conspicuous arthropod behaviours are widely used as model objects
in neurobiology when attempts are made to understand behaviour in terms of
activity of single nerve cells, or to study information processing in sensory
systems. In the West neurobiologists working in these fields are actively
cooperative. Russian scientists were for a long time rather isolated because of
political restrictions and due to a language barrier; western scientists are as a
rule, not familiar with the ...

Resistant plants may also be devoid of or lack sufficient levels of phytochemicals
to stimulate arthropod feeding or oviposition, and allow them to escape
consumption. Arthropod resistant plants may also possess unique
phytochemicals that repel or deter herbivores from feeding or ovipositing. Finally,
resistant plants may also contain chemicals that are toxic to arthropods after
digestion of plant parts. 2. ARTHROPOD SENSORY SYSTEMS INVOLVED IN
HOST SELECTION ...

Across all senses, more information on the physiology underlying receptor tuning
and specificity would be valuable. In addition, recent work in echolocation,
olfaction, electric fish, vision, and infrared sensors has shown how molecular
changes underlie tuning, diversification, and convergence in sensory receptors.
This will be a major avenue of future work and has enormous potential in
illuminating processes of evolution and mechanisms underlying sensory systems

Mammals typically have billions of neurons, as opposed to the tens of thousands
in arthropods (insects, crabs, etc.). Behavior of mammals is correspondingly more
complex, state dependent and irreproducible. Despite the reduced complexity of
arthropods, the autonomous capabilities of the simplest, still far outstrips that of
any technical artifact. For some years we have been using the behavior and
sensory systems of arthropods as an inspiration for new autonomous systems ...
