a Gravitaxis of larvae pre-selected for their upward swimming behavior (selected) and their non-dechorionated, and non-selected siblings (not selected), whose combined numbers represent two separate fertilizations. be In situ hybridization for VGLUT and AMPAR of early-dechorionated larvae, either selected for their upward swimming behavior (b, c) or not selected (d, e). f, g Temporal projection of swimming trajectories for selected larvae with normal (f) and mirror-image left-right asymmetry (g) following light dimming (projections over 13 s). Abbreviations: *p < 0.05; ***p < 0.001; n.s., not significant; pBV, posterior brain vesicle; ant., antenna cells; PR, photoreceptors; L/R, left-right. Dashed lines indicate midline. Scale bar in b is 10 μm
