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)
Plastic properties of the receptive field of the identified LPa3 neurone were studied on a semi-intact snail preparation. Mantle area representing part of the vast receptive field of the LPa3 neurone of the left parietal ganglion consists of three zones. The right part of the mantle is innervated by the right pallial and anal nerves; the former transmits to(More)
The spectral sensitivity of the dark-adapted eye of the snailHelix lucorum L. was investigated in semiintact “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)
1. Identified neurons of the snailHelix pomatia, studied with the aid of intra-cellular injection of cobalt, have numbers and orientations of processes which are specific for each particular neuron. 2. The neurons LPa3 and RPa3 have from four to seven branches which pass into the pedal ganglia and into the peripheral nerves. A network of fine filaments is(More)
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)
An investigation of the effect of opioid peptides (leucine-enkephalin and methionine-enkephalin) on the plastic properties of the system of monosynaptically connected LPa7-LPa3 and RPa3, and LPa8-LPa3 and RPa3, neurons in the brain of the edible snail was carried out. It was demonstrated that all three elements in the system under investigation (the(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)
