To characterize the difference in the sensitivity of the chemoreceptors on the outer flagellum to both female and male urines, the responses of outer flagellum afferents to various concentrations of female and male urine were analyzed quantitatively by normalizing them to the response to 1 mM L-serine (standard reference stimulus: STD) (Fig.
