Interaction between two retinula cell types in the anterior eye of the dronefly Eristalis

Tsukahara, Y.; Horridge, George Adrian


Summary. In the anterior region of Eristalis eye there is a type of retinula cell with the following features. The spectral sensitivity is broad and the slope of the V/lOglo I curve increases with increasing wavelength when the response is measured to the initital peak of the receptor potential. With a change in stimulus wavelength from 452 nm to 594 nm, the optical axis moves about 1 ~ and the plane of maximum sensitivity to polarized light changes by a definite angle. These effects can...[Show more]
