  1. ncbi request reprint A functional analysis of compound eye evolution
    Dan E Nilsson
    Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund University, Zoology Building, Helgonavagen 3, 223 62 Lund, Sweden
    Arthropod Struct Dev 36:373-85. 2007
    ..In contrast, the compound eyes in myriapods and chelicerates are likely to date back to ancestors with corneal lenses and probably without the ability to discriminate colour and polarization...

    Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund University, Zoology Building, Helgonavagen 3, 22362, Lund, Sweden
    Curr Biol 18:R1096-8. 2008
    ..Recent work on the expression of retinal transcription factors and other molecular cues delivers interesting but partly contradictory information on the early phases of eye evolution...

    Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund University, Zoology Building, Helgonavagen 3, 22362 Lund, Sweden
    Curr Opin Neurobiol 14:407-14. 2004
    ..Recent work on gene expression in specified cell types, together with comparative studies of developmental genes in cnidarians, now show some promise to a solution of the controversy...

    D E Nilsson
    Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund University, Zoology Building, Helgonavagen 3, SE 22362 Lund, Sweden
    Curr Biol 15:R94-6. 2005
    ..Photoreceptor cells of vertebrate eyes are fundamentally different from those of invertebrate eyes. New work on the brain of a ragworm now suggests that ancestral bilaterians possessed both types of photoreceptor cell...

    Dan E Nilsson
    Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund University, Zoology Building, Helgonavagen 3, 22362 Lund, Sweden
    Nature 435:201-5. 2005
    ..We argue that this may be useful in eyes serving a single visual task. The findings indicate that tailoring of complex receptive fields might have been one of the original driving forces in the evolution of animal lenses...

    ..They also hold a lens-like structure, but its optical power is minute. Optical modeling suggests spatial resolution, but only in one plane. These unique and intriguing traits support strong peripheral filtering...
