In animals with complex visual systems spatial contrast is enhanced by mutual inhibition between retinal neurones monitoring different fields1. By analogy, if animals like leeches and some caterpillars, that have several simple (non-image-forming) eyes aimed in different directions, are capable of rudimentary form detection, one might predict mutual antagonism between eyes monitoring different fields. In support of this prediction, I report here a paired interneurone in the central nervous… CONTINUE READING
