PVD, FLP and the harsh touch response neurons, as well as neurotransmitter release, were not required for the responses of ALA to picking-touch. GCaMP3 fluorescence levels in ALA neurons of animals lacking the PVD, FLP and six harsh touch neurons (A-B) and in unc-13(e51) mutants (C-D). The scale bar represents a 100% deviation from the mean baseline fluorescence. Mean ± s.e.m, N=10-11 animals. Dashed lines are provided as a guide to the eye.
