Intracellular recordings and impedance measurements from directionally-selective visual interneurons of the lobula plate of flies show that during motion, transmembrane conductance increases during both depolarizing responses to preferred directions and hyperpolarizing re­sponses to anti-preferred directions. This provides direct evidence that these interneurons are postsynaptic to two separate populations of excitatory and inhibitory input elements.
