Proboscis Extension Response of honeybees from two different subspecies during a Reversal Learning test

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.27274v1/supp-1

Electric Shock Avoidance data for two honeybee subspecies during a Reversal Learning test

In this data-set 1 means the individual was at the shock side in that particular second, 0 means the individual was not in the shock side.

Electric Shock Avoidance data for honeybee subspecies A.m caucasica and A.m. syriaca during a Reversal Learning test

Comparison of spatial-avoidance learning rate between honey bee subspecies during an ESA assay. Each data point shows the percentage of time (± standard error) bees spent on the shock side during the trial. Both in Acquisition and Reversal phase bees reduce the time spent on shock side over the duration of the training (Repeated measures ANOVA: Acquisition P-value<0.0001, F(4,436)=10.25 and Reversal P-value<0.0001, F(4,436)=6.143. A two-way ANOVA test shows there are no differences between subspecies during Acquisition (F (1, 109) = 2.315, P-value > 0.13) or during Reversal (F (1, 109) = 0.0065, P-value > 0.93).
