Here, we discuss how new information on the functions of the central complex (CX) of the insect brain might shed some light on possible neural mechanisms of dance behaviour. We summarise the features of dance communication across the species of the genus Apis We then propose that neural mechanisms of orientation and spatial processing found to be supported by the CX may function in dance communication also, and that this mechanistic link could explain some specific features of the dance form. This is purely a hypothesis, but in proposing this hypothesis, and how it might be investigated, we hope to stimulate new mechanistic analyses of dance communication.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Plath, Jenny Aino</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:title>The evolution of honey bee dance communication : a mechanistic perspective</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Barron, Andrew B.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Barron, Andrew B.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-01-22T09:46:50Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-01-22T09:46:50Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/41108"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2017-12-01</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
