2nd Experiment

on Thursday, November 15th, 2012 2:39 | by Lidia Castro

Yesterday, we cut the wings of half of the experimental flies.

We let them get over for 2 hours, and after that I repeated the same experiment we did last day, letting them choose between darkness and light.

There wasn’t a big difference between flies with wings and flies without wings, but the experiment shows flies without wings have less light preference than the other ones.
