comment What is the creature with the lowest neuron count that demonstrates cognition beyond reflexes?
So why do you say that Bees demonstrate a cognitive map, but Flies do not? Is it just that we haven't researched it yet, or do we know for sure?

What's a cognitive map?

Ahh I guess I'm looking for learning or extremely basic problem solving. So, honeybees definitely learn. If two creatures are fighting and trying to anticipate each others moves, this would also fall under my definition of cognition, as this is not hard-coded genetically.

Great, this is what I was looking for! It says I can award the bounty in 3 hours. You'll receive it as soon as SE lets me.

@Remi.b Take a look at the Wikipedia page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hox_gene#Colinearity_of_Hox_genes

@Remi.b is right. While this is a well-researched answer, it doesn't address specifically the colinearity that I was inquiring about--why the order of these genes on the chromosome matter.

@biogirl maybe you could provide a short synposis of Carroll's book in an answer?

So, as far as you know, active transport is universal characteristic of cellular life?
