Visual working memory in decision making by honey bees

Zhang, Shao Wu; Bock, Fiola; Si, Aung; Tautz, Juergen; Srinivasan, Mandyam V


The robustness and plasticity of working memory were investigated in honey bees by using a delayed matching-to-sample (DMTS) paradigm. The findings are summarized as follows: first, performance in the DMTS task decreases as the duration between the presentation of the sample stimulus and the presentation of the comparison stimuli is increased. This decrease is well approximated by an exponential decay function. Performance is significantly better than random-choice level even at delays as long...[Show more]
