Help with selecting papers for a course

I am looking for suggestions for interesting research papers for a seminar course on Biology of Sensory Systems.  You may suggest your own papers, as I would like to assemble a list of possible research papers to a class of 20 senior biology students who have a background in physiology, neurobiology, or cell biology.

The course could cover cellular mechanisms or behavioural evidence for how animals sense the environment.  Possible topics would be olfaction, thermosensation, photosensitivity, mechanosensation, nociception, UV detection, magnetoreception….to name a few.  The course will not cover aspects of central processing or perception of sensory information within the CNS, as I would like the emphasis to be on the peripheral aspects of sensation.

Non-mammalian and non-human example are especially welcome, since this is for biology majors.

I have posted this question on Researchgate as well.
