Understanding the visual pathways of the fly's compound eye has been blocked for decades at the second optic neuropil, the medulla, a two-part relay comprising 10 strata (M1-M10), and the largest neuropil in the fly's brain. Based on the modularity of its composition, and two previous reports, on Golgi-impregnated cell types (Fischbach and Dittrich, Cell Tissue Res.,1989; 258:441-475) and their synaptic circuits in the first neuropil, the lamina, we used serial-section electron microscopy to… CONTINUE READING
