Neural responses to sex pheromones and food-related odorants were recorded from single olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) in the olfactory epithelium of male goldfish. Very few ORNs responded to sex pheromones and those that did were tuned to one compound. In contrast, amino acid-sensitive units were common and often responded to another class of food odor.
