Published: 06 August 2021
...Maarten Wissink; Volker Nehring ABSTRACT Associative learning relies on the detection of coincidence between a stimulus and a reward or punishment. In the insect brain, this process is carried out in the mushroom bodies under the control of octopaminergic and dopaminergic neurons. It was assumed...

...Anuradha Batabyal; Veronica Rivi; Cristina Benatti; Johanna M. C Blom; Ken Lukowiak ABSTRACT Animals respond to acute stressors by modifying their behaviour and physiology. The pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis exhibits configural learning (CL), a form of higher order associative learning. In CL snails...
