Scientists discover how the mosquito brain integrates diverse sensory cues to locate a host to bite

University of Washington

Researchers have discovered how the mosquito brain integrates visual and olfactory signals to identify, track and hone in on a host: After the mosquito smells certain chemical cues, the mosquito scans her surroundings for certain shapes and fly toward them, presumably associating them with potential hosts.
