Nematode memory: now, where was I?

Curr Biol. 2005 May 24;15(10):R374-5. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2005.05.005.

Abstract

The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is able to use tastes, smells and temperature to locate food. New data show that worms can also detect the level of oxygen in the environment and migrate towards an oxygen level associated with food.
