“Using hoverflies to understand how the nervous system codes visual information”
Despite being equipped with low-resolution eyes and tiny brains,
many insects show exquisite abilities to detect and use visual information.
Hoverflies are not only interesting for their visual behavior but are also amongst our most important wild pollinators.
