The accuracy of the patterns of connexions of the first- and second-order neurons of the visual system of Calliphora
Horridge, George Adrian; Meinertzhagen, I. A.
The axons of the primary photoreceptor cells of the compound eye of the fly interweave in a complex but definite pattern before they terminate upon the second-order neurons. Of approximately 650 short retinula axons from behind 120 facets of the eye none terminated at an incorrect lamina cartridge. Six, seven, or eight first-order terminals upon one pair of second-order cells are arranged in a rotational sequence that is related to the positions of the retinula cells within the ommatidia....[Show more]
