Learning walks in ants.

Muller and Wehner have described a fascinating behaviour in their recent Current Biology paper (“Path Integration Provides a Scaffold for Landmark Learning in Desert Ants”). Outbound foragers perform a series of pirouettes that seem structured in order to fixate their nest entrance.

As a follow up to the paper, Graham et al. discuss the ways that path integration and snapshots could be combined.
