    Regulatory changes in two chemoreceptor genes contribute to a Caenorhabditis elegans QTL for foraging behavior

    Joshua S Greene et al.
    A quantitative trait locus that includes two pheromone receptor genes affects foraging behavior; for one of the genes, the two alleles of the QTL have opposite effects because of distinct sites of expression.

    Social interactions drive efficient foraging and income equality in groups of fish

    Roy Harpaz, Elad Schneidman
    Analysis and modeling of group behavior of adult zebrafish shows that a specialized social interaction mechanism increases foraging efficiency and equality within groups, under a variety of environmental conditions.

    Species-specific modulation of food-search behavior by respiration and chemosensation in Drosophila larvae

    Daeyeon Kim et al.
    In naturalistic conditions, larvae of the Drosophila group exhibit species-specific strategies to search for food resources through a primitive form of risk-taking behavior that is controlled by a tradeoff between exploitation and odor-driven exploration.

    AMPK acts as a molecular trigger to coordinate glutamatergic signals and adaptive behaviours during acute starvation

    Moloud Ahmadi, Richard Roy
    AMP-activated protein kinase directly coordinates glutamatergic signalling during starvation in C. elegans.

    Experimental investigation of ant traffic under crowded conditions

    Laure-Anne Poissonnier et al.
    Behavioral experiments reveal that ants, contrary to humans, avoid the formation of traffic jams at extreme density.

    Maximally informative foraging by Caenorhabditis elegans

    Adam J Calhoun et al.
    C. elegans foraging efficiently approximate maximally informative search strategies that involve abrupt switching between different types of behaviors.

    Sequential neuromodulation of Hebbian plasticity offers mechanism for effective reward-based navigation

    Zuzanna Brzosko et al.
    Sequential neuromodulation by acetylcholine and dopamine enables correlational synaptic learning which, when incorporated into a computational model, yields effective navigation toward changing reward locations as in natural foraging behavior.

    Chronology-based architecture of descending circuits that underlie the development of locomotor repertoire after birth

    Avinash Pujala, Minoru Koyama
    Newly forming descending pathways are arranged to function in parallel to existing ones and contribute to increasingly sophisticated locomotor behaviors that emerge postnatally with suitable connectivity patterns and biophysical properties.

    Neighboring communities of bonobos hunt different prey species

    Social Learning: Does culture shape hunting behavior in bonobos?

    Andrew Whiten
    New evidence that neighboring communities of bonobos hunt different prey species, despite extensive overlaps in where they live and hunt, is difficult to explain without invoking cultural factors.

  1. Point of View: Four erroneous beliefs thwarting more trustworthy research

    Mark Yarborough et al.
    Strategies to improve public trust in biomedical research are being hindered by a scientific mindset that stifles interest in reform.
