Vincent G. Dethier and chemosensory control of insect behavior

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Animal behaviorists typically seek, in other animals, phenomena that they believe underlie their own actions. For example, they search for consciousness, emotion, mood, motivation, and perception. In that quest, students of animal behavior in this century have been expected to avoid anthropomorphism and to find ways to study such behavioral states outside the context of human behavior.
