... as a special form of an implicit attention-like mechanism, for which the model does not require an explicit decision mechanism or a memory for the drawn decision. To gain insight into the goal selection mechanisms of walking blowflies, we analyzed their free walking behavior in a two-object paradigm...

... straight walking phases, the retinal image flow is composed of both translational and rotational optic flow, which might affect spatial vision, as well as fixation behavior. We addressed this issue for an orientation task where walking blowflies approached a black vertical bar. The visual stimulus...

... high-speed video to analyze compensatory head movements of blowflies walking freely on differently structured substrates. We found that even a pronounced asperity of the ground structure, with bumps of almost the size of the animal, was largely compensated by the walking apparatus of the blowfly, which...

...Bettina Schewe; Wolfgang Blenau; Bernd Walz SUMMARY Salivary gland cells of the blowfly Calliphora vicina have a vacuolar-type H + -ATPase (V-ATPase) that lies in their apical membrane and energizes the secretion of a KCl-rich primary saliva upon stimulation with serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine...

...Norbert Boeddeker; Martin Egelhaaf SUMMARY During courtship, male blowflies perform aerobatic pursuits that rank among the fastest visual behaviours that can be observed in nature. The viewing strategies during pursuit behaviour of blowflies appear to be very similar to eye movements during pursuit...

...C. Schilstra; J. H. Van Hateren ABSTRACT The motion of the thorax of the blowfly Calliphora vicina was measured during cruising flight inside a cage measuring 40 cm×40 cm×40 cm. Sensor coils mounted on the thorax picked up externally generated magnetic fields and yielded measurements...

...J. H. Van Hateren; C. Schilstra ABSTRACT The position and orientation of the thorax and head of flying blowflies ( Calliphora vicina ) were measured using small sensor coils mounted on the thorax and head. During flight, roll movements of the thorax are compensated by counter rolls of the head...

...Rukaya El-Wadawi; Ken Bowler ABSTRACT The LD 50 of 10-day-old adult blowflies was determined to be 38.12±0.07 ˚C. A transitory increase in heat resistance occurred following the exposure of adult blowflies to a sublethal heat shock at 36 ˚C. This thermotolerance was apparent 1 h after...

... during turns, implicating the b1 in the control of aerodynamic yaw torque. We used the work loop technique to quantify the effects of phase modulation on the mechanical output of the b1 of the blowfly Calliphora vicina . During cyclic length oscillations at 10 and 50 Hz, the magnitude of positive work...

...Peter J. Simmons; Shi Jian; F. Claire Rind ABSTRACT Blowflies have twelve large, second-order ocellar neurones (L-neurones) with axons in the single ocellar nerve. These neurones have fairly restricted arborizations in the posterior slope neuropile of the protocerebrum and cell bodies in the nerve...

...Simon B. Laughlin; Daniel Osorio ABSTRACT In the blowfly Calliphora vicina visual signals are enhanced by amplification and antagonism as they pass from the site of phototransduction in the retina to second-order neurones (LMCs) in the first optic neuropile, the lamina. The mechanisms responsible...
