Love spots
Perry MW and Desplan C. Curr Biol 2016. PMID 27326705 Free PMC article.

Structure and function of a compound eye, more than half a billion years old.
Schoenemann B, et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2017. PMID 29203666 Free PMC article.
Here, we describe functional units, at a cellular level, of a compound eye from the base of the Cambrian, more than half a billion years old. Remains of early Cambrian arthropods showed the external lattices of enormous compound eyes, but not the internal structures or anything about how those compound eyes may have functioned. ...

Surprising characteristics of visual systems of invertebrates
González-Martín-Moro J, et al. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2017 - Review. PMID 27422478
RESULTS: The capacity of snails to regenerate a complete eye, the benefit of the oval shape of the compound eye of many flying insects as a way of stabilising the image during flight, the potential advantages related to the extreme refractive error that characterises the ocelli of many insects, as well as the ability to detect polarised light as a navigation system, are some of the surprising capabilities present in the small invertebrate eyes that are described in this work. CONCLUSIONS: The invertebrate eyes have capabilities and sensorial modalities that are not present in the human eye. The study of the eyes of these animals can help us to improve our understanding of our visual system, and inspire the development of optical devices....

Insect-inspired vision for autonomous vehicles
Serres JR and Viollet S. Curr Opin Insect Sci 2018 - Review. PMID 30553484
The findings obtained on these natural fliers have proved to be extremely valuable when it comes to designing compact low-weight artificial optical sensors capable of performing visual processing tasks robustly under various environmental conditions (light, clouds, contrast). Here, we review some outstanding bio-inspired visual sensors, which can be used for either detecting motion in the visible spectrum or controlling celestial navigation in the ultraviolet spectrum and for attitude stabilisation purposes. ...

Compound eye formation in the termite Incisitermes minor (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae).
Rose TC, et al. Dev Genes Evol 2015. Among authors: Ediger EF. PMID 26155777
Ultimately, a uniformly pigmented eye area was formed by the early nymphal stage. The overall eye area also gradually increased along with normal caste development, but the characteristic lenses seen in a prototypical insect compound eye did not completely form until after the final nymphal stage. Electrophysiological measurements provided clear evidence that eyes were indeed functional at all stages of development where pigment was present. ...

Baldspot/ELOVL6 is a conserved modifier of disease and the ER stress response.
Palu RAS and Chow CY. PLoS Genet 2018. PMID 30081392 Free PMC article.
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is an important modifier of human disease. Genetic variation in response genes is linked to inter-individual differences in the ER stress response. However, the mechanisms and pathways by which genetic modifiers are acting on the ER stress response remain unclear. In this study, we characterize the role of the long chain fatty acid elongase Baldspot (ELOVL6) in modifying the ER stress response and disease. ...

A study of the role of vision in the foraging behaviour of the pyrrhocorid bug Antilochus conquebertii (Insecta; Hemiptera; Pyrrhocoridae)
Mishra M, et al. Invert Neurosci 2019. PMID 30603776
Our study aims to describe (1) external morphology of the compound eye of Antilochus conquebertii, (2) postembryonic changes involving the eye's shape and size and (3) behaviour of the animal with respect to the organization of the compound eye. With each moult of the insect, the structural units of the compound eye increase in size as well as the number, resulting in an overall increase in eye size. ...

The role of ocelli in cockroach optomotor performance
Honkanen A, et al. J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol 2018. PMID 29192330 Free PMC article.
Previously we have shown that the optomotor reaction of the cockroach persists down to the intensity of moonless night sky, equivalent to less than 0.1 photons/s being absorbed by each compound eye photoreceptor. By occluding the compound eyes, the ocelli, or both, we show that the ocellar stimulation can change the intensity dependence of the optomotor reaction, indicating involvement of the ocellar visual system in the information processing of movement. ...

Facultative dosage compensation of developmental genes on autosomes in Drosophila and mouse embryonic stem cells.
Valsecchi CIK, et al. Nat Commun 2018. PMID 30194291 Free PMC article.
One remarkable exception is the X chromosome, where copy number differences between sexes are buffered by dosage compensation systems. ...The evolutionary origin and conservation of this process orchestrated by MSL2, the only male-specific protein within the fly MSLc, have remained unclear. ...

Neural organization of afferent pathways from the stomatopod compound eye.
Thoen HH, et al. J Comp Neurol 2017. PMID 28577301
Using Golgi impregnations to resolve single neurons we identify cells in different parts of the lamina corresponding to the three different regions of the stomatopod eye (midband and the upper and lower eye halves). While the optic cartridges relating to the spectral and polarization sensitive midband ommatidia show some specializations not found in the lamina serving the upper and lower eye halves, the general morphology of the midband lamina reflects cell types elsewhere in the lamina and cell types described for other species of Eumalacostraca....
