In crickets, polarized-light information from the blue sky is processed by polarization-opponent interneurones (POL-neurones). These neurones receive input from the polarization-sensitive blue receptors found in the specialized dorsal rim area of the compound eye. Even under optimal conditions, the degree of polarization d does not exceed 0.75 in the blue region of the spectrum and it is normally much lower. The aim of this study is to assess how POL-neurones perform at low, physiologically… CONTINUE READING
