    • Frontal eye field neurons assess visual stability across saccades. 

      Crapse, Trinity B; Sommer, Marc A (J Neurosci, 2012-02-22)
      The image on the retina may move because the eyes move, or because something in the visual scene moves. The brain is not fooled by this ambiguity. Even as we make saccades, we are able to detect whether visual objects remain ...
    • Global Motion Processing by Populations of Direction-Selective Retinal Ganglion Cells. 

      Cafaro, Jon; Zylberberg, Joel; Field, Greg D (The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience, 2020-07)
      Simple stimuli have been critical to understanding neural population codes in sensory systems. Yet it remains necessary to determine the extent to which this understanding generalizes to more complex conditions. To examine ...
    • Looking past the model species: diversity in gaze-following skills across primates. 

      Rosati, Alexandra G; Hare, Brian (Curr Opin Neurobiol, 2009-02)
      Primates must navigate complex social landscapes in their daily lives: gathering information from and about others, competing with others for food and mates, and cooperating to obtain rewards as well. Gaze-following often ...
    • Night-time neuronal activation of Cluster N in a day- and night-migrating songbird. 

      Zapka, Manuela; Heyers, Dominik; Liedvogel, Miriam; Jarvis, Erich D; Mouritsen, Henrik (Eur J Neurosci, 2010-08)
      Magnetic compass orientation in a night-migratory songbird requires that Cluster N, a cluster of forebrain regions, is functional. Cluster N, which receives input from the eyes via the thalamofugal pathway, shows high neuronal ...
    • Parents' and Family Weekend 

      Duke University. Office of Student Affairs (2006-11-03)
      Parents and Family Weekend provides an opportunity for students' families to visit them and to share in his or her Duke experience. This weekend is a special time for parents, siblings, and students. Families discover what ...
    • Responses to conspecific chemical stimuli in the treatment snail Achatina fulica (Pulmonata: Sigmurethra). 

      Chase, R; Pryer, K; Baker, R; Madison, D (Behavioral biology, 1978-03)
      The giant African snail, Achatina fulica, followed trails made with the mucus of A. fulica, but did not follow those consisting of mucus from Otala vermiculata. In olfactometer experiments, A. fulica and Helix aperta oriented ...
    • Spatial vision in the purple sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus (Echinoidea). 

      Yerramilli, D; Johnsen, S (J Exp Biol, 2010-01-15)
      Recent evidence that echinoids of the genus Echinometra have moderate visual acuity that appears to be mediated by their spines screening off-axis light suggests that the urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, with its higher ...
