Characterisation of a blowfly male-specific neuron using behaviourally generated visual stimuli

Trischler, Christine; Boeddeker, Norbert; Egelhaaf, Martin


The pursuit system controlling chasing behaviour in male blowflies has to cope with extremely fast and dynamically changing visual input. An identified male-specific visual neuron called Male Lobula Giant 1 (MLG1) is presumably one major element of this pursuit system. Previous behavioural and modelling analyses have indicated that angular target size, retinal target position and target velocity are relevant input variables of the pursuit system. To investigate whether MLG1 specifically...[Show more]
