Honeybees have impressive capabilities for sensory orientation, learning and memory. They emerge into adult life in a colony of thousands of individuals. Young worker bees first perform tasks inside the dark hive for about three weeks before commencing foraging under bright sunlight. This drastic transition exposes bees to changing demands on spatial orientation, and profitable food sources must be explored in highly variable environments. Mushroom bodies are multisensory integration centers in the insect brain involved in learning and memory. They are particularly large in the honeybee (cover) and contain thousands of synaptic circuits with remarkable plasticity related to age, sensory experience and long-term memory. This review highlights the progress in understanding neuroplasticity in mushroom body microcircuits and its role in behavioral plasticity of this important social insect. View this paper
