Locusts learn to associate visual stimuli with drinking

Phytophagous insects regulate both the amounts and the balance of nutrients ingested (reviewed by Simpson and Raubenheimer, 1993). Mechanisms known to play a role include direct nutrient feedbacks from the hemolymph to the peripheral chemoreceptors (Abisgold and Simpson, 1988; Simpson and Simpson, 1992), as well as learned associations between sensory stimuli and various nutrition-related unconditioned stimuli (Bernays, 1993). A form of nonassociative learning, neophilia, has also been… CONTINUE READING
