Scientists 'plug in' to circuitry behind sex in male fruit flies

The findings pave the way for deeper, circuit-level studies into sexual behavior and how it can be modified by social experience. Male fruit flies court females with a series of hard-wired or genetically programmed behaviours, and failure during any part of the process may prevent reproduc ...
