Antenna (biology)
Antennae (singular: antenna) in biology have historically been paired appendages used for sensing in arthropods. More recently, the term has also been applied to cilium structures present in most cell...

Sensillum
A sensillum (pl.= sensilla) is an arthropod sensory organ protruding from the cuticle, or sometimes lying within or beneath it. Sensilla are divided in chemical, mechanical (e.g. : Campaniform se...
Johnston's organ
Johnston's organ is a collection of sensory cells found in the pedicel (the second segment) of the antennae in the Class Insecta. Johnston's organ detects motion in the flagellum (third and typically...
Antennal lobe
The antennal lobe is the deutocerebral neuropil of insects which receives the input from the olfactory sensory neurons on the antenna. Functionally, it shares some similarities with the olfactory bulb...
Mushroom bodies
The mushroom bodies or corpora pedunculata are a pair of structures in the brain of insects, other arthropods and some annelids notably the ragworm. They are also known to play a role in olfactory lea...

Cilium
A cilium (Latin for eyelash; the plural is cilia) is an organelle found in eukaryotic cells. Cilia are slender protuberances that project from the much larger cell body.There are two types of cilia: m...

Ciliogenesis
Ciliogenesis is defined as the building of the cell's antenna (primary cilia) or extracellular fluid mediation mechanism (motile cilium). It includes the assembly and disassembly of the cilia during ...
Mucociliary clearance
Mucociliary clearance, also referred to as mucociliary apparatus or mucociliar clearance (MCC), derived from mucus, cilia (cilia of the tracheal surface epithelium in the respiratory tract) and clear...
Axoneme
Numerous eukaryotic cells carry whip-like appendages (cilia or eukaryotic flagella) whose inner core consists of a cytoskeletal structure called the axoneme.The axoneme serves as the "skeleton" of the...

Ciliopathy
A ciliopathy is a genetic disorder of the cellular cilia or the cilia anchoring structures, the basal bodies, or of ciliary function.Although ciliopathies are usually considered to involve proteins th...
