 Title    Stability and Regeneration of Rhodopsin Absorption Spectra at an Air-Water Interface  
 Abstract    Stability and regenerability of the absorption spectrum of CTAB solubilized rhodopsin at an air-water interface is studied. The spectral properties of rhodopsin films in the dark are stable more than 150 minutes. When rhodopsin is bleached (40 — 50%) and maintained in highly com­ pressed films recovery of the spectrum is observed. The recovery is 57% to 100% of the pigment present before irradiation. At low surface pressure or if the films are expanded after irradiation there is no observable recovery.

 Title    The Relationship between Visual Acuity and Illumination in the Fly, Lucilia sericata  
 Abstract    The variation in visual acuity with illumination has been studied by monitoring the extracellular response of direction sensitive motion detecting neurons to a drifting sine wave grating displayed upon an oscilloscope spreen. Acuity reaches a maximum value of 0.46 cycles/degree at luminances above 1.0 cd/m2 and decreases gradually over a 3.8 log unit attenuation in intensity to a minimum value of 0.05 cycles/degree. The results have been compared with theoretical acuity curves for the coupound eye with various dark adaptation mechanisms. The analysis indicates that a major strategy of dark adaptation in the fly is a process involving intensity-dependent neural summation of signals from photoreceptors having different visual axes.
