Current Biology: Visual sensory networks and effective information transfer in animal groups

Posted by in Headlines, Scientific article, Video One comment

In our recent paper, “Visual sensory networks and effective information transfer in animal groups”, published in Current Biology, we combine experiments with model selection methods to reveal the interaction networks over which information spreads through fish schools.
In the experiment, we first show that a minority of ‘informed’ fish, trained to associate a green laser target [...]
