How active vision shapes visual input.

To finish the year off we have a extensive review from the Bielefeld group, regarding the ways that insect visual systems are reliant on specific behavioural routines that shape the received input. The key quote from the review’s abstract is this: “The key idea of this review is that biological agents, such as flies or bees, acquire at least part of their strength as autonomous systems through active interactions with their environment and not by simply processing passively gained information about the world.”
