Spatial coincidence of cues in visual learning by the honeybee (Apis mellifera)

Horridge, George Adrian


The discrimination of patterns was studied in a Y-choice chamber fitted with a transparent baffle in each arm, through which the bees had a choice of two targets via openings 5 cm wide. The bees see the positive (rewarded) and the negative (unrewarded) targets from a fixed distance. The patterns were bars (subtending 22° × 5.4° at the point of choice) presented in one-quarter of each target.
