Yaw torque fluctuations ofDrosophila in stationary flight at the torque meter in many cases represent meaningful behavior patterns (e.g., Figs. 4, 9a). In the closed loop situation for rotations around the fly's vertical axisDrosophila stabilizes any panorama by adjusting its “optomotor balance” (e.g., Figs. 2, 3, 8, 11) — a presumably integrative directionally movement sensitive flight control mechanism. In this state of “harmony” with the environmentDrosophila often performs active turns by… CONTINUE READING
