Catecholamines are believed to play an important role in regulating the properties and functional organization of the neural circuitry mediating consummatory feeding behaviors in Aplysia. In the present study, we morphologically and electrophysiologically identified a pair of catecholaminergic interneurons, referred to as B65, in the buccal ganglia. Their(More)
The buccal ganglia of Aplysia contain a central pattern generator (CPG) that mediates rhythmic movements of the buccal apparatus during feeding. Activity in this CPG is believed to be regulated, in part, by extrinsic serotonergic inputs and by an intrinsic and extrinsic system of putative dopaminergic cells. The present study investigated the roles of(More)
UNLABELLED Our frog brainstem preparation revealed mechanisms for the central control of breathing that are in many ways similar to those of mammals. Thus, the basic control mechanisms for air-breathing appear to have been present in the Devonian common ancestors of frogs and mammals and may be common to all lung-breathing vertebrates.
