Antennal motor activity of the honeybee was used to test the effects of sucrose stimuli and of serotonin and octopamine microinjections into the brain. The antennal scanning behavior was analyzed in behavioral experiments. Activity of an antennal muscle, the "fast pedicellus flexor muscle" which dominates scanning behavior, was used as a physiological(More)
Antennal movements of the honey bee can be conditioned operantly under laboratory conditions. Using this behavioural paradigm we have developed a preparation in which the activity of a single antennal muscle has been operantly conditioned. This muscle, the fast flagellum flexor muscle, is innervated by an identified motoneuron whose action potentials(More)
