Abstract
Neuroethological investigational methods. Configurational prey recognition and its directional variance. Neurophysiological recording experiments show the activities of individual neurons in the optic tectum and caudal dorsal thalamus. Triggering of prey capture and fleeing by specific point stimulation of the brain. Modification of the innate releasing mechanism through local brain lesion. Animated demonstration of the toad brain and a model of the innate releasing mechanism.
