SummaryInGryllus campestris the visual field of the compound eye (average spatial angle 207°) and the binocular overlap of both compound eyes (46% of the total visual field) were determined with the aid of the deep pseudopupil, in order to have a reference system for the location of the receptive field of medulla neurons.A detailed quantitative analysis of two types of medulla neurons has been carried out with small test light spots given above a certain background illumination.One type of unit… CONTINUE READING
