Spontaneous electrical activity and interaction of large and small cells in cardiac ganglion of the crab, Portunus sanguinolentus.
1. Semi-isolated preparations of the nine-celled cardiac ganglion of the crab, Portunus sanguinolentus, were studied electrophysiologically, using simultaneous recording from extracellular and two orExpand

Separation of neuronal sites of driver potential and impulse generation by ligaturing in the cardiac ganglion of the lobster,Homarus americanus
SummaryThis study documents the ability of individual neurons of theHomarus americanus cardiac ganglion to produce driver potentials (regenerative, 20 mV, 200 ms depolarizing responses toExpand

Fluorescence localization of monoamines in crab neurosecretory structures.
1. The pericardial organs and anterior ramifications (both neurohaemal structures) of six species of crabs have been examined as whole mounts by the histochemical method for monoamines based onExpand

Isolation and characterization of slow, depolarizing responses of cardiac ganglion neurons in the crab, Portunus sanguinolentus.
1. Tetrodotoxin-resistant, active responses to depolarization of the large cardiac ganglion cells were studied in semi-isolated preparations from the crab, Portunus sanguinolentus. Impulse activityExpand

Neurohormonal alteration of integrative properties of the cardiac ganglion of the lobster Homarus americanus.
The spontaneous burst discharges of isolated lobster (Homarus americanus) cardiac ganglia were recorded with a spaced array of electrodes. Small regions (less than 1 mm) of the ganglion were exposedExpand
