Central-place foragers like bees use landmark-based infor mation in order to return to important locations. Experiments revealed that the insects s tore a “snapshot image” of the surroundings of the target location and derive a home direct ion by comparing current image and snapshot. A corresponding algorithmic model, the so -called “snapshot model”, was proposed by Cartwright and Collett (1983). Here we present a neural architecture derived from this model that demonstrates how visual landmark… CONTINUE READING
