Scallops visually respond to the size and speed of virtual particles.

Abstract

The unique eyes of scallops are abundant along the right and left valve mantle margins. These eyes form images by reflection off a concave spherical mirror, and give scallops an angular resolution of around 2 degrees , far better than the 13-40 degrees angular resolution provided by the eyes of other bivalves. It has been argued that bivalve mantle eyes… (More)
