Spectral inputs and ocellar contributions to a pitch-sensitive descending neuron in the honeybee

Hung, Yu-Shan; Van Kleef, Joshua; Stange, Gert; Ibbotson, Michael


By measuring insect compensatory optomotor reflexes to visual motion, researchers have examined the computational mechanisms of the motion processing system. However, establishing the spectral sensitivity of the neural pathways that underlie this motion behavior has been difficult, and the contribution of the simple eyes (ocelli) has been rarely examined. In this study we investigate the spectral response properties and ocellar inputs of an anatomically identified descending neuron (DNII2) in...[Show more]
