outdated cell id
Almost all my T4 cells colored by layer:
Looks, that the Giant Neurons method works quite well
Interesting T cell with additional terminals along the axonal neurite:
Almost all T4 and T5 neurons in the left LOP:
Because there’s a limit to at most 3 consecutive posts, I’m editing the previous one to add a new finding:
According to FlyBase there are approximately 3 aMe12 cells in each optic lobe. Looks, that our fly has at least 4 of them in the left LOP:
Ill break the 3 post streak with the whole left lobe Dm4 layer (minus two boutons, still looking for them). Right lobe in progress, should be done before new year
Wow, that looks incredible!
All the left Lawf1 I was able to find so far:
There are still some holes, but I’d say, it’s over 95% of all the cells in this lobe (a few of them are still incompleted).
… and all the Lawf2:
Wow!! These and the T4s and T5s look so amazing!
Oh my goodness these cells are astonishing!
Lawfs looking so cool!! This is the best thread.
Almost all left-side Pm3s (I think).
The interesting part, is that they are much more intertwined, than many other medulla’s wide-field cells.
Pretty OA-AL2b2 neurons
All four of these cells are upstream synaptic partners for (probably) all the Lawf2 cells. They are also the only synaptic partners, that are common for all the Lawf2 cells.
My guess, is they are some sort of a way for the central brain to steer the eyes, because the dendrites are from the central brain and all the axons go to the Lawf2 cells (also many Mi1(?) cells) and the axons of the Lawf2 cells are far in the Lamina, close to the Retina.
wow those are gorgeous!
this is a fascinating set of cell!
the difference in size of these somas is wild
Like Jupiter and Earth.
All (?) Mi1 cells in the left optic lobe. 795 cells.
Wow! They form such an interesting tiling pattern
