Research team discovers epigenetic pathway that controls social behavior in carpenter ants
(PHYSorg.com Biology)
 




Through early adulthood, exposure to new experiences-like learning to drive a car or memorizing information for an exam-triggers change in the human brain, re-wiring neural pathways to imprint memories and modify behavior. Similar to humans, the behavior of Florida carpenter ants is not set in stone-their roles, whether it is protecting the colony or foraging for food, are determined by signals from the physical and social environment early in their life. But questions remain about how long they are vulnerable to epigenetic changes and what pathways govern social behavior in ants.
