"Limulus" Psychophysics: Spectral Sensitivity of the Ventral Eye
Wasserman, Gerald S.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 105, 3, 240-53, Sep 76
The ventral eye of "Limulus" (horseshoe crab) contains only one type of photoreceptor. Behaviors mediated by the ventral eye provide an unambiguous representation of the function of that single-receptor type. Compares such behaviors with results of acute, single-cell investigations to assay for the contributions of candidate neural codes in the regulation of behavior. (Editor/RK)
