Most behaviour in insects is programmed genetically or is innate to them. However, insects have the ability to use their ‘memory’ to learn behavioural-responses, that can be trained through associative-learning.
Bees are excellent ‘learners’. They can be trained efficiently to express a specific behaviour, induced via a range of sensory-stimulus.
The Automatic Bee Trainer allows for training and conditioning of bees in an efficient manner, that saves time and costs of conducting insect-behavioural research!
Application of Automatic Bee Trainer:
The Automatic Bee Trainer can be used for absolute and differential conditioning of bees using appetitive training protocols. Training in bees can be performed for expressing behavioural responses using:
- Image, colour, pattern
- Physical waves
