In many species, motion-sensitive neurons responding to optic flow at higher processing stages are well characterized; however, less is known how this representation of ego-motion is further transformed into an appropriate motor response. Here, we analyzed in the blowfly Calliphora vicina the visuomotor transformation from motion-sensitive neurons in the lobula plate [V2 and vertical system (VS) cells] onto premotor descending neurons [descending neurons of the ocellar and vertical system… CONTINUE READING
