Adaptions for Nocturnal and Diurnal Vision in the Hawkmoth Lamina

Stockli, Anna; Ribi, Willi A.; Warrant, Eric

Description

Animals use vision over a wide range of light intensities, from dim starlight to bright sunshine. For animals active in very dim light the visual system is challenged by several sources of visual noise. Adaptations in the eyes, as well as in the neural circuitry, have evolved to suppress the noise and enhance the visual signal, thereby improving vision in dim light. Among neural adaptations, spatial summation of visual signals from neighboring processing units is suggested to increase the...[Show more]
