  • Flies were exposed to odors and sucrose of the same concentrations as used in the learning assays (0.2% BEN, 0.4% OCT, and 1 m sucrose) during the control experiments. There were no statistically significant differences among any of the groups for each of the individual experiments (separated by table boundaries). n = 8 for each group. Means ± SEM are shown.
