Abstract

Abstract Blue adaptation and orange adaptation is used to isolate the contributions of the visual subsystems to the lamina response of Drosophila melanogaster. Besides the prominent on-transient and offresponse the extracellular lamina response contains also an attenuated component from retinula cells R7, R8. Flicker fusion frequencies measured in the lamina range are indistinguishable from those measured in the receptor region. The response mediated by receptor cells R1 to R6 fuses at a threefold higher frequency than the R7, R8 response.
