Odor attraction (left, odor-only assay) and light avoidance (right, light-only) behavior of Drosophila larvae. 15 larvae per plate are filmed (1 frame/second) using infra-red illumination for 5min. The larvae on the left are attracted to a point source of isoamyl acetate located on the upper part of the plate. In contrast, larvae on the right are repelled by light illuminating the plate in a gradient with higher intensity on the upper part of the plate.
