Light perception: more than meets the eyes


Mueller, Kaspar P; Neuhauss, Stephan C F (2012). Light perception: more than meets the eyes. Current Biology, 22(21):R912-R914.

Abstract

Larval zebrafish lacking eyes and pineal organ show elevated activity levels and undirected light-seeking behaviour upon loss of illumination. This behaviour, termed dark photokinesis, is mediated by hypothalamic deep brain photoreceptors expressing melanopsin.
