Figure 1

Sex-specific organization of male (blue) and female (pink) neurons in higher olfactory centres may determine the interpretation of pheromone signals transmitted from the fly 'nose' by neurons that are largely similar in both sexes (black). The dashed oval marks a region of putative male-specific connections, absent in females, between these central and more peripheral populations of neurons.
