Work on the program was directed primarily toward 1 further characterization of the electrical responses to olfactory stimulation and perfection of recording methods, 2 attempts to elucidate the effect of several biological and experimental variables on olfaction and 3 exploration of the olfactory spectrum of the antennal pits as indicated by electrical responses to compounds belonging to a number of classes. A new technique was developed for the instrumentation of the flys olfactory organ, simplifying the former procedure and making it possible for an individual to become proficient in instrumenting a fly in a short time.
