The so-called 'Reichardt detector' can successfully account for many properties of fly motion vision. In its simplest form, the signals derived from neighboring image locations become multiplied after a low-pass filter has delayed one of them. This operation is done twice in a mirror-symmetrical form and the resulting output signals become finally subtracted. As predicted by this model, fly neurons respond to a brief motion pulse with a sudden rise in activity followed by an exponential decay… CONTINUE READING
