Invertebrates, as all other animals, rely on sensory input from their biotic and abiotic environment for survival and reproduction. Depending on the importance of a signal for a given species, accuracy of sensory coding might vary from pure detection up to precise coding of intensity, quality and temporal features of the signal. Investing energy in highly sophisticated sense organs and related central nervous processing areas can be of utmost importance in a complex environment and in animals using advanced communication systems. Peripheral and central sensory systems have therefore developed different anatomical and physiological features to optimally encode behaviourally relevant signals.

With the current Research Topic we aim at illustrating the latest advances in the field of coding mechanisms in peripheral and central sensory pathways in different invertebrates. We welcome submissions on different sensory systems and in different groups of invertebrates to encourage an exchange of concepts and ideas.
