Sine Song (audio) Princeton University Share Print E-Mail Loading audio... Caption This file is of the sine portion of the male fruit fly's song. The researchers found that, in general, males sang loudly -- or produced more pulses -- when females were farther away and moving quickly. Upon catching up to a female, males shifted to a song with more of the quieter sines. Most importantly, the researchers found that the neural circuits that guide the male's movement also determine the pattern -- the composition of pulses versus sines -- of his song.
