Apidologie - Alexis Buatois observes a new virtual system of visual learning for the bees. The bees are suspended in the locomotion compensator conceived for the analysis of their visual orientation. The bee, immobilized by the thorax, is placed on a hollow sphere of which the movements, induced by the walking of the bee, are recorded by optical sensors that allow for the reconstruction of the bee's trajectory. The bee walking on the compensator is exposed to visual stimuli present inside a cylindrical arena. The CRCA has shown that the cognitive capacities of recognition of visual forms by domestic bees are similar to those of humans and primates. This work was published in the revue Nature 2004. CNRS.

Apidologie - A bee in front of an odor gun. This technique allows for an association between an odor and a sugary reward. A sweet solution is applied to the antennas and the bee stretches out its proboscis, its little trunk. This odor-reflex association has brought to light the bees' capacity to remember odors and the time necessary to acquire olfactory memory. But also more complex learning: for example, an odor A is associated with a sugary solution and an odor B is not. Then, shortly after, it is reversed: the odor A is no longer associated with sugar but the odor B is. Result: the bee is capable of replacing the first signal by the new one.
