    • Characterization of voltage-gated ionic currents in a peripheral sensory neuron in larval Drosophila 

      Nair, Stefan Robert; Bate, Christopher Michael; Pulver, Stefan R (2010-06-02)
      Abstract Background The development, morphology and genetics of sensory neurons have been extensively studied in Drosophila. Sensory neurons in the body wall of larval Drosophila in particular have been the subject of ...
    • Imaging fictive locomotor patterns in larval Drosophila 

      Pulver, Stefan R; Bayley, Timothy G; Taylor, Adam L; Berni, Jimena; Bate, Christopher Michael; Hedwig, Berthold Gerhard (American Physiological Society, 2015-08-26)
      We have established a preparation in larval Drosophila to monitor fictive locomotion simultaneously across abdominal and thoracic segments of the isolated CNS using genetically encoded Ca2+ indicators. The Ca2+ signals ...
    • Selective inhibition mediates the sequential recruitment of motor pools 

      Zwart, Maarten F; Pulver, Stefan R; Truman, James W; Fushiki, Akira; Cardona, Albert; Landgraf, Matthias (Elsevier (Cell Press), 2016-07-14)
      Locomotor systems generate diverse motor patterns to produce the movements underlying behavior, requiring that motor neurons be recruited at various phases of the locomotor cycle. Reciprocal inhibition produces alternating ...
