Activity of descending contralateral movement detector neurons and collision avoidance behaviour in response to head-on visual stimuli in locusts

, : Activity of descending contralateral movement detector neurons and collision avoidance behaviour in response to head-on visual stimuli in locusts. Journal of Comparative Physiology A, Sensory, Neural, and Behavioral Physiology 187(2): 115-129

We recorded the activity of the right and left descending contralateral movement detectors responding to 10-cm (small) or 20-cm (large) computer-generated spheres approaching along different trajectories in the locust's (Locusta migratoria) frontal field of view. In separate experiments we examined the steering responses of tethered flying locusts to identical stimuli.

Three different nuclear genes encode the essential iron-sulfur subunit of mitochondrial complex II (succinate dehydrogenase) in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana), raising interesting questions about their origin and function. To find clues about...
