SummaryIn freely walking flies,Drosophila melanogaster, stationary stripes induce fixation processes. If two vertical black stripes (width 6°) are presented against an illuminated white background and if the two stripes are separated by an angular distance ofαν < 60°, the flies prefer the direction of the bisector of the angle between the two objects, i.e. the angular distribution of the flies' positions is characterized by one maximum pointing at the center between the two stripes. If two… CONTINUE READING
