1. Responses to moving contrast gratings and to flicker have been studied in cells in the medulla of the fleshfly Sarcophaga bullata using intracellular recordings and stainings. Medullary neurons responded periodically to flicker. Those which primarily discriminated motion had periodic responses or DC shifts in membrane potentials or increased noise. Intrinsic neurons included a T1a cell which was directionally selective (DS) and specific non-DS amacrine cells (6 types) arborizing either… CONTINUE READING
