Three types of receptor with different λmax of 360, 430, and 530 nm were found in the locust retina by extracellular recording. Their spectral sensitivity curves were considerably broader than the absorption curves of the corresponding pigments. Possible coefficients of electrical coupling between different receptor types in ommatidia were calculated on the… CONTINUE READING
