The time constant of movement detectors in the fly visual system has been proposed to adapt in response to moving stimuli (de Ruyter van Steveninck et al. 1986). The objective of the present study is to analyse, whether this adaptation can be induced as well, if the luminance of a stationary uniform field is modulated in time. The experiments were done on motion-sensitive wide-field neurones of the lobula plate, the posterior part of the third visual ganglion of the blowfly, calliphora… CONTINUE READING
