Beating a flight path to food

The waggle dance of the honeybee is a classical paradigm in behavioral biology. LMU neurobiologists have now investigated how the neuronal circuits process and encode the information communicated during the dance.

Puberty not only a matter of hormones

When rats are touched at their genitals, their brain changes and puberty accelerates. Bernstein researchers at the Bernstein Center Berlin report that the representation of the genitals in the cortex doubles in size.
