Flies, like humans, experience a well-known consequence of adaptation to visual motion, the waterfall illusion. Direction-selective neurons in the fly lobula plate permit a detailed analysis of the mechanisms responsible for motion adaptation and their function. Most of these neurons are spatially non-opponent, they sum responses to motion in the preferred direction across their entire receptive field, and adaptation depresses responses by subtraction and by reducing contrast gain. When we… CONTINUE READING
