Responsiveness to sucrose and habituation of the proboscis extension response in honey bees

Abstract

In honey bees, complex behaviours such as associative learning correlate with responsiveness to sucrose. In these behaviours, the subjective evaluation of a sucrose stimulus influences the behavioural performance. Habituation is a well-known form of non-associative learning. In bees, the proboscis extension response can be habituated by repeatedly… (More)
