Lateralization, i.e., the different functional specialisation of the left and right side of the brain, has been documented in many vertebrate species and, recently, in invertebrate species as well. In the Honeybee, Apis mellifera L. (Hymenoptera Apidae), it has been shown that short-term (<1h) recall of olfactory memories would be possible mainly from the right rather than from the left antenna. Here we confirmed this finding showing that recall of the olfactory memory 1h after training to… CONTINUE READING
