Optic glomeruli and their inputs in Drosophila share an organizational ground pattern with the antennal lobes.


Studying the insect visual system provides important data on the basic neural mechanisms underlying visual processing. As in vertebrates, the first step in visual processing in insects is through a series of retinotopic neurons. Recent studies on flies have found that these converge onto assemblies of columnar neurons in the lobula, the axons of which… (More)
