Visual pigment spectra from sensitivity measurements after chromatic adaptation of single dronefly retinula cells

Tsukahara, Yo; Horridge, George Adrian


Summary. The sensitivity of single retinula cells 1–6 of the flyEristalis towards monochromatic light was measured in two types of adaptation experiments. First, the sensitivity was measured at various wavelengths after adaptation of the visual pigment to the photochemical equilibrium at a fixed wavelength (Figs. 3, 4, 5 and 6). Then, on the same cell, the sensitivity was measured by a test light of a fixed wavelength after adaptation at each wavelength, from 333 nm to 594 nm (Figs. 8 and 9)....[Show more]
