A flower doesn't dream of the bee. It blossoms and the bee comes."- Mark Nepo
In a recent study conducted on Honey Bees, scientists found an connection between dopamine and nectar sources.
Bees had elevated levels of dopamine after nectar consumption suggesting a correlation between memory and the ability to feel emotion. Specifically, dopamine levels spiked when performing their signature waggle dance to let their pals know where they found some sweet nectar.
Bees have been running the world for a long time. It's not surprising that they can associate memory with emotion and may explain why some groups of bees are less pleased with our behavior.
Do you think destructive human activity creates upset or sad bees by disrupting dopamine cycles?
