Using Active Vibration Control to Aid Intracellular Electrophysiology

A team of researchers looked to understand binocular encoding within the Damselfly Pre-motor Target Tracking Systems. Some researchers at the University of Minnesota found that vibration noise limited their electrophysiology setup, which needed a bespoke solution.

The team worked with Herzan to eradicate vibration noise from the electrophysiology testing setup. Allowed the research team to record intracellularly from neurons in damselflies.

Application Highlights

The end result was a success, some key points were:

  • Target-selective descending neurons are homologous in damselflies and dragonflies
  • During predatory flights, demoiselles align their prey frontally
  • Summation to threshold explains binocular responses of demoiselle TSDNs
  • TSDN reference frame is sagittal in dragonflies but binocular-fused in damselflies

*Highlights are taken from a previous manuscript. All data, information, and media items are owned by the respective research team creating the publication and relevant rights holders.

The data which was gathered, and the paper produced by the research consortium contains a lot of interesting figures, data, and analysis.
