The computation of motion plays a central role in visual orientation. The fly has been successfully used as a model system for analyzing the mechanisms underlying motion detection. Thereby, much attention has been paid to a neuronal circuit of individually identifiable neurons in the third visual ganglion that extracts different types of retinal motion patterns and converts these patterns into specific components of visual orientation behavior. The extended dendritic trees of these large cells… CONTINUE READING
