[Visual interneurons, sensitive to the size of objects and the direction of their movement in dragonflies of the genus Sympetrum].

Abstract

Experiments have been made on 4 dragonfly species -- Sympetrum vulgatum, S. flaveolum, S sanguineum, S. danae. A pair of neurons was found in the thoracic ganglia and connectives, which has symmetrical contralateral receptive fields. These neurons are selectively sensitive to swift upward motion of a target of 3--10 degrees in size. This type of response… (More)
