The Honeybee Brain

This show features Andrew Barron, Professor of Cognitive Neuroethology, has dedicated his career to understanding the brains of humans, other living beings and even machinery in an effort to create a boundary for what real intelligence is and isn’t. This specific project, funded in part by the Templeton World Charity Foundation, focuses on the brain of a honey bee because of its complex system. The discoveries found in this project answer complicated questions about intelligent beings and their evolutions. How do we account for complex learning, complex navigation, complex memory and complex assessment?
