Scientists identify 36 genes, 100 neuropeptides in honey bee brains

From humans to honey bees, neuropeptides control brain activity and, hence, our behaviors. Understanding the roles these peptides play in the life of a honey bee will assist researchers in understanding the roles they play in their human counterparts. There are a million neurons in the brain of a...
