Abstract

Sensory Discrimination of Blood and Floral Nectar by Aedes aegypti Mosquitoes Highlights d Neurons in the syringe-like stylet are the first to detect blood as mosquitoes bite d The taste of blood is integrated across taste qualities and stylet neuron subsets d Subsets are tuned to distinct blood components and insensitive to floral sugars d Polymodal taste quality integration assigns a blood-specific context to glucose
