The responses of attached lampreys to homogeneous visual stimulation and the role of visual stimuli in orientation during locomotion were investigated. Experiments were performed by video recording the responses of intact and lesioned animals to illumination. The following results were obtained. 1. In lampreys attached with their sucker mouth to the bottom of the aquarium, illumination of one eye evoked several possible motor responses (ordered after mean latency): (a) movement of the… CONTINUE READING
