Courtship in Drosophila.

Author information

  • 1The Neurosciences Institute, San Diego, California 92121, USA.


Courtship is a complex behavior in Drosophila that recruits a wide range of genes for its realization, including those concerning sex determination, ion channels, and circadian rhythms. Results from different experimental approaches-behavioral and genetic comparisons between species, analysis of mutants and mosaics, and identification of specific sensory stimuli-sketch the outlines of a set of pleiotropic genes acting on a distributed system in the brain to produce the species-specific sequence of responses and actions.
