The structure of the median and lateral eyes of the scorpion and the nature of the electroretinogram (ERG) have been described elsewhere, as has been the basic arrangement of apparatus used in the electrophysiological aspects of this study (Machan, 1966, 1967). The position of the shielding pigment in scorpion eyes has been shown to play a role in the general sensitivity of the eye (Machan, 1968). For this reason an attempt has been made in this study to determine to what extent, if any… CONTINUE READING
