Input and output neurons in the mushroom body have been studied. Different classes of input neurons projected to the different areas within the calyx (pseudocolor), shaping concentric zones for the axonal projections. This does not match the dendritic arborization of the output neuron classes (white). Despite the strong regional localization of axons of different input neuron classes, the dendrites of output neurons were less well classified. Input neurons for multiple pheromone components and plant odors enter the calyx, and they are integrated by the elaborate dendritic field of output neurons.
