Bumblebees balance pain perception with pursuit of food

Bangalore (Karnataka) [India], July 27 (ANI): A new study discovered that bumblebees can modulate behavior to negotiate a trade-off between the perception of harmful stimuli and the pursuit of food. Mammals can modulate their responses to noxious stimuli, such that pain perception does not interfere with pursuing other motivational goals. However, insects are thought to respond to damaging stimuli in an inflexible, context-independent manner.
