Adaptive Behaviour and Learning
In telotaxis, the animals generally head straight for one of the two lights (although
they may switch from one to the other as they approach) even if the lights are
quite far away. Fraenkel and Gunn give a graphic, natural-history description of ...

Tinbergen (1942) makes this explicit when he says: ". . . in the concept of
pharotaxis the part played by mnemic processes is not taken as a criterion,
because in tropo-, meno-, and telotaxis the criterion upon which the 'distinction' is
based also ...

The hover fly Eristalis, for instance, moves midway between two lights (tropotaxis)
when intact but heads for one of the two lights when one eye is blinded (telotaxis)
. In two-light experiments a bee may either walk along the midline or toward ...
Notes on the Elements of Behavioral Science
Telotaxis During telotaxis, the animal orients toward or away from a
configurational stimulus, for example, toward the odor of a mate or away from the
image of a predator. Eliminating one of the pair of bilateral receptors does not

Telotaxis. The orienting mechanisms which keep a certain stimulus at a fixed
place on a receptor, mostly the eye, are called telotaxis. When we see a sprinter
doing a 100 meter dash at an atheletic meet, we turn our eyes to get the image of

Door beetles use their right eye for orientation by solar compass in forenoon, and
their left eye in afternoon. Biological significance of this type of orientation is still
not known. Telotaxis Mechanisms keeping certain stimulus at a fixed place on a ...

Telotaxis was not observed in schizophrenia, but after careful telemetering
observation and subsequent analysis, it was established that telotaxis is
nevertheless present in patients with schizophrenia in the form of moving only the
eyes without ...
A Dictionary of Animal Behaviour
Eyes that are capable of providing information about the direction of light by
virtue of their structure are capable of *telotaxis, a form of directional orientation
that does not depend upon simultaneous comparison of the stimulation from two
