How doth the little busy bee: unexpected metabolism


Barros, L Felipe; Sierralta, Jimena; Weber, Bruno (2015). How doth the little busy bee: unexpected metabolism. Trends in Neurosciences, 38(1):1-2.

Abstract

Brain energy metabolism powers information processing and behavior, much as electricity powers a computer. However, a recent study in insects suggests that this relationship is more interesting, causally linking aggressive behavior to energetics. These findings may also shed new light on aerobic glycolysis, a long-standing riddle of human brain physiology.
