Discrimination of complex textures by bees

Maddess, Ted; Davey, M; Yang, E


A problem confronted by visual systems is that of discriminating textures. It appears that a recently described class of orientation-tuned neurones in the bee brain embody properties of mechanisms used by humans to discriminate complex textures. In particular these mechanisms would permit bees to discriminate a large range of textures by giving bees access to information related to higher-order correlations between texture elements. To determine if bees can exploit such textural information we...[Show more]
