Insect vision: emergence of pattern recognition from coarse encoding

Antoine Wystrach, Alex D M Dewar, Paul Graham

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Neurogenetic tools of Drosophila research allow unique access to the neural circuitry underpinning visually guided behaviours. New research is highlighting how particular areas in the fly's central brain needed for pattern recognition provide a coarse visual encoding.
