Visual pattern memory of Drosophila melanogaster at the torque meter is investigated by a new learning paradigm called novelty choice. In this procedure the fly is first exposed to four identical patterns presented at the wall of the cylinder surrounding it. In the test it has the choice between two pairs of patterns, a new one and one the same as the… (More)
Honeybees remember the shapes of flowers and are guided by visual landmarks on their foraging trips. How insects recognize visual patterns is poorly understood. Experiments suggest that they try to match retinotopically the incoming visual pattern with a previously stored memory image. But bees can be conditioned to individual pattern parameters such as… (More)
Drosophila flies can be trained in the flight simulator to operantly avoid heat by choosing certain orientations relative to landmarks. Flies primarily store pattern orientations associated with the absence of heat. They readily escape from heat-associated orientations under the direct influence of the reinforcer but not in the subsequent memory tests. The… (More)

Duplication end-point mapping in the rIIB cistron indicates that the order of the BS-B10b segments is the inverse of that presented in Benzer's (1961) genetic maps. This findings is supported by two- and three-factor crosses and the phenotypes of rII deletions extending into the D region.
