Visual gaze control during peering flight manoeuvres in honeybees

Boeddeker, Norbert; Hemmi, Jan


As animals travel through the environment, powerful reflexes help stabilize their gaze by actively maintaining head and eyes in a level orientation. Gaze stabilization reduces motion blur and prevents image rotations. It also assists in depth perception based on translational optic flow. Here we describe side-to-side flight manoeuvres in honeybees and investigate how the bees' gaze is stabilized against rotations during these movements. We used high-speed video equipment to record flight paths...[Show more]
