Insect navigation: the complex world and the simple eye

The remarkable navigational abilities of social insects are proof that small brains can produce exquisitely efficient, robust navigation in complex environments. We will see here how such behaviours can spontaneously emerge when simple mechanisms are in closed-loop with natural environments, and how a same toolkit can provide various solutions adapted to the complexity of different environments, from desert to rainforest.
