In addition to learning, memory performance could also be modulated by the environmental context. In this study published in the journal Current Biology, scientists show that CO2 released by Drosophila flies in a group recruits a long-lasting cryptic memory, which adds to the existing individual memory.
Laure-Anne Poissonnier is the 2021 laureate of the young researcher award of the French Society for the Study of Animal Behavior (SFECA).
Environmental pollutants have many deleterious effects on biodiversity, even at very low doses. Heavy metals are no exception. In this study published in the journal Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety, scientists exposed honey bee hives to low doses of lead found in the environment, and demonstrated their impacts on the morphological development of workers and their learning and memory capacities.

Crowdfight is a non-profit organization set up by the scientific community to facilitate scientific collaborations.
Mathieu Lihoreau, CNRS Researcher from the Centre de Recherches sur la Cognition Animale (CRCA UMR5169) of the Centre de Biologie Intégrative de Toulouse (CBI), is the winner of an ERC Consolidator for his project BEE-MOVE : How do bees move across the landscape and fashion plant reproduction ? within the CRCA-CBI.
Widely used in the field of neuroscience, the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) is a study model able to modify its behavior after an elementary task.
Within the context of a collaboration between the CRCA-CBI Toulouse and the Center for Psychiatric Neuroscience of Lausanne, we recruit a PhD student to investigate the importance of mitochondria in cognitive processes during aging.
Ethologists from the CRCA-CBI have partnered with EDB ecologists, ENVT researchers, and the company Xerius to develop a new methodology to simplify and characterize animal movements in space and time.
