Electroantennogram for Recording Olfactory Responses of an Insect to Plant Volatiles
The electroantennogram (EAG) technique for recording olfactory responses of an insect to plant volatiles has been described in this chapter. The procedure is useful in detecting the plant chemicals to which the insects respond positively or negatively.
