Horizontal section of a cobalt-mordanted Cajal block reduced-silver preparation showing the neural architecture of the lobula (lo) and the lobula plate (lo p), both connected to the inner layer of the medulla (me) by the second optic chiasma (och 2). The lobula plate shows three layers of tangential neurons (1-3). 1 is the horizontal cell layer, 2 is an intermediate layer of an, as yet, unknown cell type. 3 is the layer of vertical cell dendrites. Note the obvious difference of organization between the laminated lobula plate and columnar lobula.
