1. The structure of one class of giant tangential neurons in the lobula plate ofCalliphora, the ‘Vertical System (VS)’ has been investigated by light microscopy. Different staining and reconstruction procedures were employed to ensure that all existing VS-neurons are revealed. 2. There are 11 VS-cells in a characteristic, and constant arrangement (Fig. 2). Each cell covers a particular area of the lobula plate, i.e., a distinct area of the retinotopic input array (Table 2), and therefore has a… CONTINUE READING
