Neural mechanisms underlying memory in drosophila melanogaster

Abstract:

In a complex and constantly changing environment, animals are required to guide behaviour in a dynamic way to adapt to the current environment as well as the organism’s needs. Although the ability to remember past events allows animals to predict future outcomes and thereby guide behaviour, an input does not always produce stereotypical behaviours. Factors such as conflicting information from parallel memories, cue specificity and context will impact the predictability of an outcome across...
