English Knowing which genes contribute to natural variation in learning and memory would help us understand how differences in these cognitive traits evolve among populations and species. We show that a natural polymorphism at the <i>foraging</i> (<i>for</i>) locus, which encodes a cGMP-dependent protein kinase (PKG), affects associative olfactory learning in <i>Drosophila melanogaster</i>. In an... Show more…
