The optomotor yaw torque response of fixed flying female houseflies, Musca domestica to three different types of visual stimuli is analyzed. In contrast to most previous investigations, the stimuli were displayed for short time intervals only in order to approximate transiently occuring visual stimuli, which mainly govern the torque generation during free flight. Monocular stimulation with a periodic pattern moving in different positions in the equatorial plane of the compound eyes reveals that… CONTINUE READING
