Sex and experience related neural and behavioural plasticity in ants
Ants utilise age- and caste-based division of labour, providing an opportunity to investigate behavioural and neural plasticity. Newly eclosed workers perform tasks, such as nursing, and initiate foraging as they mature. Alate males only search for mates and do so exclusively on the wing. In worker ants, age and initial light exposure induce neural changes to the mushroom bodies, higher-order sensory processing regions. However, synaptic neuroplasticity has not been directly linked to thedoi:10.25949/19441685 fatcat:wjf3jtncb5bnpgdtf54ikmfcma
