Action potentials evoked by stepwise-moving visual stimuli have been recorded extracellularly from the horizontally selective movement detectors in the lobula complex of the blowflyCalliphora erythrocephala (M.). Regarding the relation between the ommatidial mosaic structure of the compound eye and the behaviour of the detector, the following experimental results are obtained: a) Maximum reactions are obtained for stimuli which move with a stepwidth equal toδϕ h, whereδϕ h is the effective… CONTINUE READING
