    • Bidirectional thermotaxis in Caenorhabditis elegans is mediated by distinct sensorimotor strategies driven by the AFD thermosensory neurons 

      Luo, Linjiao; Cook, N.; Venkatachalam, Vivek; Martinez-Velazquez, L. A.; Zhang, Xiaosong; Calvo, A. C.; Hawk, J.; Macinnis, Bronwyn Lee; Frank, Michelle Murrah; Ng, J. H. R.; Klein, Mason Joseph; Gershow, M; Hammarlund, M.; Goodman, M. B.; Colon-Ramos, D. A.; Zhang, Y.; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2014)
      The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans navigates toward a preferred temperature setpoint (Ts) determined by long-term temperature exposure. During thermotaxis, the worm migrates down temperature gradients at temperatures above ...
    • Controlling Airborne Cues to Study Small Animal Navigation 

      Gershow, Marc; Berck, Matthew E; Mathew, Dennis; Luo, Linjiao; Kane, Elizabeth Anne; Carlson, John R; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Nature Publishing Group, 2012)
      Small animals such as nematodes and insects analyze airborne chemical cues to infer the direction of favorable and noxious locations. In these animals, the study of navigational behavior evoked by airborne cues has been ...
    • Navigational Decision Making in Drosophila Thermotaxis 

      Luo, Linjiao; Gershow, Marc Herman; Rosenzweig, Mark; Kang, Kyeonglin; Fang-Yen, Christopher M.; Garrity, Paul A,; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Society for Neuroscience, 2010)
      A mechanistic understanding of animal navigation requires quantitative assessment of the sensorimotor strategies used during navigation and quantitative assessment of how these strategies are regulated by cellular sensors. ...
