1. An open- and closed-loop study of the way ladybirds,Coccinella septempunctata, approach vertical posts emphasizes two features of this reflex. First, ladybirds turn preferentially towards close objects, obtaining the necessary distance information from optic flow. Secondly, once an object has been fixated, movement of its image over frontal retina tends to suppress any response to other laterally viewed targets. 2. Recordings were made of the trajectories followed by ladybirds in an open… CONTINUE READING
