Enhanced cholinergic transmission promotes recall in honeybees

Guez, D; Zhu, Hong; Zhang, Shao Wu; Srinivasan, Mandyam V

Description

The involvement of the cholinergic system in learning and memory in honeybees has been well established using olfactory conditioning. We examined the effect of Methyl Parathion (MeP), an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor of the organo-phosphate family, on the learning and recall of visual and olfactory discrimination tasks in honeybees. One of our expectations was to observe the effects induced by both the nicotinic and muscarinic systems, as the blocking of acetylcholinesterase should induce an...[Show more]
