Special Issue "Honeybee Neurobiology and Behavior"
A special issue of Insects (ISSN 2075-4450).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 September 2019).
Interests: neural correlates of olfaction, learning, memory, navigation, dance communication, behavioral analyses of navigation and dance communication in honeybees

Insects are model systems in research on the neural basis of behavior and animal cognition. Processes underlying sensory perception, learning, memory and high-order integration have been studied most successfully in insects. Among them, Hymenoptera have been most intensively used to unravel the mechanistic basis of cognitive processes. This special issue will report recent discoveries and review key subject areas in the field of insect neuroscience.
