Optomotor response

Slowly are we getting closer to getting a optomotor response
I made the following changes

  • Glued flies to a needle rather than the plastic optic fiber
  • Head of fly was not glued, the fly was able to rotate its head
  • I put focus on making sure to get the fly as straight as possible
  • Contrast between black and white was increased
  • The light was adjusted to increase the brightness within the arena
There is an optomotor response but it is entirely generated from just one single fly, the remaining 4 flies had no OR.
