Angular sensitivity functions for light and dark-adapted locust retinula cells have been measured. The angular sensitivity for light-adapted cells follows a Gaussian function but in the dark-adapted condition the measured function is broader than Gaussian at its base. Acceptance angles for light-adapted cells are 1.5°±0.2° (horizontal), 1.4°±0.1° (vertical) and for dark-adapted cells, 2.4°±0.5° (horizontal) and 2.5°±0.4° (vertical). These values are significantly smaller than those previously… CONTINUE READING
