A matched filter for polarisation patterns.

Over many years, the work of Uwe Homberg and colleagues has revealed many of the mechanisms and principles by which direction information is extracted from celestial patterns and encoded in the nervous system. The latest installment if this work shows that neurons in the central complex of locust act matched filters for the specific patterns of polarisation and encode direction in an unambiguous code.
