velocity smell question

Post by ShiN1GaM1 » Thu Aug 02, 2018 6:12 pm

I don't understand how does the velocity smell works, could someone explain it to me? I read somethings about it but just got more confused. Could someone give me some examples?

With a Senseocyte ot simply detects the speed of the cell moving across the substrate and produces signal substance accordingly.

A Stereocyte can detect motion based on its orientation in the organism. Forward and backward motion or left and right motion. Or diagonal motion of you have a good use case for that ;-)

But it detects it's own velocity right? Not the velocity of nearby cells.

And btw, does the stereotyte detect velocity along the cell in the same for it detects food (horizontally - side to side)? or it dectect or does it detect the velocity along vertical axis (back to front)?

Yes, it's the sensing cells own velocity. The Stereocyte senses along the orientation of its antennas like food smell or cell color sense, correct.
