Bees can perhaps be counted - a british university study suggests that complex tasks need big brains
Bees have a brain only about a million neurons, while the people have almost 100 billion.According to the study, bees are able to calculate using a rather small set of nerve cells. EPA/AOP

Bees in the affected parts of the calculation using the relatively small number of nerve cells, out iScience magazine published london Queen Mary -university research.

in order to Examine the bees ' ability to calculate the face objects, the researchers simulate only four neurons covering ”miniatyyriaivon” on your computer. It turned out that only four cells will be able to count small amounts of things, if they are examined one after another.

Previous studies have shown that bees can count about four or five objects. They register the items in the flight route on the basis of their.

the Bee brain function differs in people in that they view things when calculating one after another, while people fell they see you set.

Although the bee does not understand the number concept, its brains have been reduced to a calculation in such a way that it requires great intelligence.

Interesting conclusions

Lead researcher Vera Vasas Queen Mary university, told reporters that the results can draw interesting conclusions.

– Although the calculation is generally thought to require high intelligence and large brains, it can make a very small number of nerve cells, if they work well together, Vasas describes.

Bees have about a million neurons, while the people have almost 100 billion.

Vasas hope that others get excited to explore it, what kind of cognitive performance the animals were capable of, and what means they do it. Research suggests that other animals are capable of resolving complex problems with smaller brains.
