New preprint: A Bumblebee CX Projectome
After six years of work the first paper from our comparative connectomics work has come to life! Started over a beer at a conference in Cairns, Australia in 2015, we have come a long way. Imaging was done by Rachel Templin at the Center for Microscopy and Microanalysis at the University fo Queensland, Australia. Most reconstructions were done by Johanna Chavez, and more recently by Julian Kempenaers. Marcel Sayre has put it all together, spending endless hours analyzing the data, making amazing figures and writing up this manuscript into a coherent and exciting story about brain evolution, nagivation circuits, and about how much of a fly brain is found in a bee brain!
