The insect ocellus contains a large number of photoreceptors which converge on a small number of large second-order neurones, called L neurones. The L neurones exit from the ocellus and project into the ocellar tract of the brain, where they make synapses with third-order neurones (reviewed by Goodman, 1981). Response characteristics of L neurones have been well documented (Goodman, 1981; Mizunami et al. 1986), but less is known about ocellar third-order neurones. In locusts, three types of… CONTINUE READING
