French Society for the Study of

Animal Behavior Young Scientist Award 2015

 

Aurore Avarguès-Weber's young scientific carrier is promoted through the SFECA 2015 Young Scientist award. The prize will be awarded during the annual conference of the society that will be held in Strasbourg from the 21th to the 23th of April, in which Aurore will present her research.

She worked on honey bees visual cognitive skills in the CRCA during her PhD defended in 2010. She then left to London (Queen Mary University - Prof. Lars Chittka team) for a postdoctoral position on information transfer between individuals in bumblebees. She is currently working back in the CRCA to investigate the neurobiological basis of visual learning in honey bees.
