Spectral and ocellar inputs to honeybee motion-sensitive descending neurons

Hung, Yu-Shan


Optomotor reflexes have been observed in many insects and in some cases the neural pathways that mediate these reflexes have been identified physiologically and anatomically. In honeybees Kaiser (1975) established that the spectral sensitivity of optomotor responses in bees almost exactly matched that of the green photoreceptors, suggesting an exclusive input from green photoreceptors. However, physiological studies showed that the motion detectors in the optic lobes have a secondary response...[Show more]
