Directional cue integration in dung beetles

Projekt: Avhandling



There is a diverse range of sensory cues in the surroundings that can be used to obtain directional information from. Examples of these are the sun, the polarized pattern that spans across the sky, and wind; all of which different organisms can use to orientate or navigate. To start understanding how information from such directional cues are used, I combine behavioural assays with studying the underlying neuronal circuits in my model organisms, ball-rolling dung beetles. Ultimately, this will contribute to answer questions about how directional cues are integrated, as well as shedding more light on where and how it happens.
