Fixation-sensitive areas in the eyes of the walking fly, Calliphora erythrocephala

  title={Fixation-sensitive areas in the eyes of the walking fly, Calliphora erythrocephala},
  author={Eberhard Horn and Miranda B. Fischer},
  journal={Biological Cybernetics},
In Calliphora erythrocephala the visual fixation behaviour in one-eyed flies and partial blinded flies has been investigated. One-eyed flies show approximately the same stripe and edge fixation response as intact flies. Elimination of the frontal eye parts including the binocular field of vision does not effect the visual stripe fixation. On the other hand, if only the frontal areas of both eyes including the binocular field of vision are left open, no preferential direction can be observed… CONTINUE READING
