Labeled Image of Wasp Brain Slices

Caption: This image shows cross sections of wasp brains from two different species, labeled to indicate sensory processing regions of the brains. Optic lobes and the collar region of the mushroom body calyx are associated with visual processing. Antennal lobes and the lip region of the mushroom body calyx are associated with sensing through the antennae (chemosensory and tactile sensing).
