In a fly, butterfly, locust and dragonfly we examined the responses of a variety of directional motion-sensitive neurons which run from the brain down the ventral cord. The stimulus was a sinusoidally modulated moving pattern of regular stripes presented at a range of velocities in random order for either 0.1 s or 2.0 s. The response was measured as the total number of spikes to each stimulus. The neurons fall into two groups, 'fast' and 'slow'. The responses of the fast type rise progressively… CONTINUE READING
