...Ajay Narendra; Willi A. Ribi ABSTRACT Insects have exquisitely adapted their compound eyes to suit the ambient light intensity in the different temporal niches they occupy. In addition to the compound eye, most flying insects have simple eyes known as ocelli, which assist in flight stabilisation...

...Yuri Ogawa; Willi Ribi; Jochen Zeil; Jan M. Hemmi ABSTRACT In addition to compound eyes, honeybees ( Apis mellifera ) possess three single-lens eyes called ocelli located on the top of the head. Ocelli are involved in head-attitude control and in some insects have been shown to provide celestial...

...Richard P. Berry; William T. Wcislo; Eric J. Warrant SUMMARY Growing evidence indicates that insect ocelli are strongly adapted to meet the specific functional requirements in the environment in which that insect lives. We investigated how the ocelli of the nocturnal bee Megalopta genalis...

..., unlike the strictly diurnal A. cerana and A. florea , A. dorsata possess large ocelli, a feature that it shares with all dim-light bees. However, the eyes of the facultatively nocturnal A. dorsata are much less sensitive than those of known obligately nocturnal bees such as Megalopta genalis in Panama...

... that this context was determined by the ocelli. In our light condition, we noted that nearly three-quarters of trials resulted in tunneling ( Fig. 5C,D ; Fig. 6A )( P <0.01, χ 2 test). Because cockroaches are nocturnal animals, we suspected that the bright ambient light conditions may have affected...

... synaptic transmission ocelli cockroaches The ocellar tract of the cockroach contains axons of four L neurones ( Mizunami et al . 1982 ) and arborizations of nine types of ocellar-driven neurones. The ocellar-driven neurones, which we term third-order neurones, comprise five types which project...
