A genetic push to understand motion detection

Neuron. 2011 Jun 23;70(6):1023-5. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2011.06.005.


Two articles in this issue of Neuron (Eichner et al. and Clark et al.) attack the problem of explaining how neuronal hardware in Drosophila implements the Reichardt motion detector, one of the most famous computational models in neuroscience, which has proven intractable up to now.
