... by facilitating learning, memory and decision making. Here, we evaluated learning and memory in foragers of the bumble bee Bombus impatiens trained to simple (unimodal) versus complex (bimodal) signals under restrained conditions. Use of a proboscis extension response protocol enabled us to control the timing...

... certainty about the value of another component, color hue. We first trained two groups of bumble bees ( Bombus impatiens Cresson) to discriminate between rewarding and unrewarding artificial flowers of slightly different hues in the presence vs absence of scent. In a test phase, we presented these bees...

...Bradley D. Worden; Ana K. Skemp; Daniel R. Papaj SUMMARY We examined the effect of learning a new task on the performance of a previously learned task with the same set of visual cues in bumblebees, Bombus impatiens . Previous studies have shown that given a binary choice at each task, bumblebees...
