Asymmetry of Drosophila ON and OFF motion detectors enhances real-world velocity estimation

Abstract

The reliable estimation of motion across varied surroundings represents a survival-critical task for sighted animals. How neural circuits have adapted to the particular demands of natural environments, however, is not well understood. We explored this question in the visual system of Drosophila melanogaster. Here, as in many mammalian retinas, motion is… (More)
