6.5. Training variables and aversive stimuli
Aversive conditioning is influenced
by many training variables. These variables should be considered in the design
and interpretation of aversive conditioning experiments (Abramson, 1994). Very
few of these variables have been systematically manipulated in honey bee
aversive conditioning studies (Giurfa et
al., 2009). An overview of important training variables and their effects
is given in Table 3.
