In my group we use hoverflies to understand how the nervous system codes visual information. We use a range of techniques, such as electrophysiology of single neurons in the fly brain, quantitative behavior, free flight experiments, and field site measurements. Our neuroethological approach allows us to use behaviorally relevant stimuli in more controlled laboratory experiments.
