On the existence of 'fast' and 'slow' directionally sensitive motion detector neurons in insects

Horridge, George Adrian; Marcelja, L


In a fly, butterfly, locust and dragonfly we examined the responses of a variety of directional motion-sensitive neurons which run from the brain down the ventral cord. The stimulus was a sinusoidally modulated moving pattern of regular stripes presented at a range of velocities in random order for either 0.1 s or 2.0 s. The response was measured as the total number of spikes to each stimulus. The neurons fall into two groups, ‘fast’ and ‘slow’. The responses of the fast type rise progressively...[Show more]
