Abstract

Our account of vision in Drosophila has focused on visual orientation behavior. It has been useful to distinguish three levels, which in the behavior of freely moving flies are intimately interwoven. At the first level the fly stabilizes its orientation against internal and external perturbations, at the second level it chooses a certain orientation with respect to landmarks and thirdly, it adapts its orientation to the pursuit of an objective.
