A structure of synaptic connections between the identified sensory and giant command neurons of Helix lucorum was studied. It was found that EPSPs arising in the giant neuron as responses to single action potentials generation in sensory neuron consist of several monosynaptic and several polysynaptic components having different magnitude, latencies, and(More)
By electrophysiological and microanatomical methods of analysis of snail CNS small neurones it was shown that a number of neurones form a monosynaptic connection (MSC) with the gigantic polyfunctional neurone LPa3. By using cobalt and nickel staining, the structure of MSC cells LPa7--LPa3 was studied. Six identified synapses in two LPa3 processes zones were(More)
The structure of the synaptic connections between identified sensory and giant command neurons of the parietal ganglia of the snail is examined. It is shown that the excitatory postsynaptic potential arising in the giant neuron in response to the generation of a single action potential in the presynaptic neuron consists of several monosynaptic components(More)
The spectral sensitivity of the dark-adapted eye of the snail Helix lucorum L. was investigated in semi-intact "optic cupoptic nerve-cerebral ganglion" preparations. The data of the recording of the electroretinogram in response to monochromatic radiation of varied intensities were used to plot the spectral sensitivity functions. The averaged spectral(More)
Light stimulation of a snail's eye elicits spikes in the optic nerve with the latency less by 150-170 ms than that of a corresponding retinal ERG-reaction. This period is constant independently of the intensity of stimulus. Sensory part of the optic nerve consists of at least three types of fibres defining action potentials with different amplitudes and(More)
