Cross-modal interaction between visual and olfactory learning in Apis cerana

Zhang, Li-Zhen; Zhang, Shao Wu; Wang, Zi-Long; Yan, Wei-Yu; Zeng, Zhi-Jiang


The power of the small honeybee brain carrying out behavioral and cognitive tasks has been shown repeatedly to be highly impressive. The present study investigates, for the first time, the cross-modal interaction between visual and olfactory learning in Apis cerana. To explore the role and molecular mechanisms of cross-modal learning in A. cerana, the honeybees were trained and tested in a modified Y-maze with seven visual and five olfactory stimulus, where a robust visual threshold for...[Show more]
