Pavlov's cockroach: Classical conditioning of salivation in an insect

A new study, led by Makoto Mizunami and colleagues at Tohoku University in Japan, demonstrates classical conditioning of salivation in cockroaches, for the first time in species other than dogs and humans, thereby providing the first evidence of sophisticated neural control of autonomic function in insects. Its underlying neural mechanisms remain elusive because of the complexity of the mammalian brain. The results provide a useful model system for studying cellular basis of conditioning of salivation in the simpler nervous system of insects.
