Nicolás Fuenzalida-Uribe*, Bryon Silva*, Saurin Gandhi, David Vo, Parham Zamani, Sheeba Vasu, Todd C Holmes, Diane K. O’Dowd and Jorge M. Campusano. Innexin7-containing gap junctions contribute to synchronous neuronal activity and olfactory responses in Drosophila. *Both authors contributed equally to this work. (Under review)
