A main target of neuroscience is to understand mechanisms underlying learning, memory formation and memory maintenance. Learning and memory offer animals the ability to modify their behavior in response to changes in the environment. Bees’ remarkable learning ability has attracted extensive attention and has made bees a popular model for studying the neurobiological basis of learning and memory. My work focuses on exploring genes, neurotransmitter and other small molecules related with bees’ visual learning and memory.
