Abstract:Finally, in Chapter 4 I investigated how octopamine in antennal lobes may be regulated. Because juvenile hormone acts over developmental time scales to affect foraging while octopamine acts over short-term scales, I investigated whether octopamine is downstream of juvenile hormone in the regulation of foraging. Results from this chapter suggest that octopamine acts downstream of juvenile hormone to affect the transition to foraging in honey bees.
