Colour vision in butterflies - I. Single colour experiments

Horridge, George Adrian; Marcelja, L.; Jahnke, R.


1.The retinula cells ofVanessa are similar in physiological properties, including spectral sensitivityS(λ) and negative electrical coupling, to those already described inPapilio, except that red-sensitive cells have not been found in either retina or lamina. 2. In the dark-adapted eye, with a stimulus of one colour, lamina ganglion cells yield only hyperpolarizations. 3. Some lamina ganglion cells (LMC's) have a broad flatS(λ) with angular sensitivity showing that they receive summed input...[Show more]
