Infrared Imaging : A Motion Detection Circuit for Rattlesnake Thermal Vision

Kelber, Almut LU (2019) In Current Biology 29(11). p.403-405
Abstract

Pit vipers detect moving warm-blooded prey with infrared receptors in their pit organs. Neurons in two brain nuclei extract the direction of prey motion by lateral inhibition circuits similar to those known from visual systems.
