Ant brains aren’t the easiest subject to probe, but capillary electrophoresis may lead the way in studies of bug behavior
Matthew Hallam | | Quick Read
Colony-specific behaviors of red forager ants (Pogonomyrmex barbatus) indicate potential neurological differences. Testing this hypothesis, Jill Venton and colleagues literally picked the brains of ants from nine wild colonies, extracting them and separating the contained amines by capillary electrophoresis (CE) coupled with fast-scan cyclic voltammetry.
