A good deal of the good fortune of technological know-how has rested on its particular equipment. one among which has been firstly the learn of straightforward phenomena equivalent to that of falling our bodies, or to decompose platforms into elements with well-defined houses less complicated than these of the entire procedure. In our time there's a transforming into information that during many circumstances of significant functional or clinical curiosity, reminiscent of economics or the hu­ guy mind, we need to take care of really complicated platforms which can't be decomposed into their elements with out wasting the most important homes of the full process. In addi­ tion, complicated platforms have many elements and will be checked out from many issues of view. at any time when a sophisticated challenge arises, a few scientists or folks are able to invent plenty of appealing phrases, or to cite Goethe "denn immer wo Begriffe feh­ len, dort stellt ein Wort zur rechten Zeit sich ein" ("whenever recommendations are lack­ king, a notice looks on the correct time"). commonly one of these technique provides not just the layman but in addition scientists operating in fields assorted from that of the in­ ventor of those new phrases the impact that this challenge has been solved, and i'm sometimes stunned to determine how influential this sort of "linguistics" has become.

In this connection the elements of a new movement detector theory are mentioned. h Introduction Complex systems such as the central nervous system. or even parts of it like the visual system. posses a large number of components. A determination of the detailed function present time. but of any individual component fortunately is not seems needed if rather hopeless at the one is mainly interested in features on a macroscopic scale such as the behaviour of an organism in its environment. How optical information is processed by the fly's visual system has been explored in great detail.

Total numbers fluctuate strongly in agreement with the behaviour of other unconstrained autocatalytic systems. The frequencies, however, converge asymptotically to constant values. They obey a IN law and their behaviour justifies the use of differential equations to describe the evolution of the frequencies in systems without constraints. (3) The stochastic treatment provides a reinterpretation of the error threshold relation derived previously from the deterministic equations. Zero or non-zero probability of survival to infinite time of the master sequence becomes the decisive quantity in the derivation of a stochastic error threshold.

The response at phase 0° is a sinusoid that changes dramatically when the phase changes. 8 sec. 8 sec on the response is stationary, quite similar to the torque response plotted in Fig. 12a. Many other experimental and computational tests of the model have been carried out and are published in REICHARDT, POGGIO and HAUSEN, [31], and GUO and REICHARDT, [32J. Recent experimental and theoretical investigations by REICHARDT and GUO [33] have shown, that pattern discrimination by the fly is a special (degenerate) case of figure-ground discrimination.
