... in cognitive strategy as well. In Drosophila melanogaster , such age-related decreases in memory scores have been studied intensely for the association of odours with electric shock punishment. We report that odour–sucrose reward memory scores likewise decrease as the flies age. This was observed after one...

... of their behavioral impact on Drosophila melanogaster larvae. Rhodiola rosea root samples have an attractive smell and taste to the larvae, and exert a rewarding effect. This rewarding effect was also observed for R. rosea root extracts, and did not require activity of dopamine neurons that mediate known rewards...
