Abstract

What are the neuronal mechanisms for extracting visual features? Städele et al. examine a group of 19 neuron classes of the fly brain and highlight two that detect visual features with response properties very different from those that characterize motion vision. Feature detection by these cells is under neuromodulatory influence by octopamine.
