New paper on lateralization

Today we finally publish some data that we collected back in summer 2015: an investigation of ant eye asymmetry (ommatidia count) and lateralization (turning bias). We found that ants who turned left in a branching maze tended to have slightly better vision (sampling resolution – more ommatidia) in their right eye, and vice versa.
