Phycomyces sporangiophores showl a growth response to a light stimus and an avoidance bending response to a physical barrier. A bluie-light stimnlluts Imninisteredl in conjunction with a barrier interferes with the avoidance bending sponse. This interference begins ifter a latency of abotit 3 minultes atndt continues a period of 4 to 5 minutes.
