Two wings of the marine mollusc Clione limacina oscillate synchronously during swimming. These movements are controlled by pedal ganglia. Synchronization of rhythmic activities in the ganglia is produced by interneurons of groups 7 and 8 whose axons pass to the contralateral ganglion through the pedal commissure. After destruction of commissural pathways,… (More)
Activity of motoneurons from pedal ganglia of marine mollusc Clione limacina was recorded during generation of the locomotor rhythm. Motoneuron groups controlling antagonistic wing muscles are active alternatively, excitation of one group being accompanied by inhibition of the other group. Many synergetic motoneurons are electrically coupled.
Two antagonistic groups of neurons, active in protractor and retractor phases of the feeding cycle, were found in the buccal ganglia of the pteropod mollusc Clione limacina. Neurons within each group are electrically coupled, while the groups inhibit one another. Each group is able to perform independent rhythmic activity. When the activity of one of the… (More)
Effect of serotonin on generation of the feeding rhythm in buccal ganglia was studied in 8 species from 3 subclasses of gastropod molluscs. Serotonin (10(-5) mol/l) initiated or increased the rhythmical activity in the buccal ganglia. The effect of serotonin was potentiated with theophylline (phosphodiesterase inhibitor).
FITC-labelled alpha-bungarotoxin (alpha BT[FITC]) was used to identify acetylcholine (ACh)-sensitive neurons in the central nervous system of pteropod mollusc Clione limacina. Two small symmetrical neurons were stained with alpha BT[FITC] on the dorsal surface of the cerebral ganglia. The staining was highly specific as it was completely blocked by… (More)
Two groups of neurons (motoneurons and putative interneurons), exhibiting periodic activity with the locomotory rhythm, were recorded in the pedal ganglia of the isolated nervous system of the mollusc Limacina helicina. Motoneurons periodically generated spike bursts, while interneurons generated only one prolonged (100-400 ms) action potential per cycle.… (More)
Activity of interneurons from isolated pedal ganglia of marine mollusc Clione limacina was recorded during generation of the locomotor rhythm. Two groups of reciprocally active interneurons were found. These neurons generate one prolonged action potential per locomotory cycle. Inhibitory interaction between the two groups was observed. The interneurons were… (More)
Nervous centers that coordinate rhythmical movements with body stabilization in space are well known in vertebrates. Here we report a single identified interneuron CPB3c (cerebropedal neuron c from group B3) that serves the same function ofpostural control during locomotion in a simple animal model--the marine pteropod mollusk Clione limacina. CPB3c… (More)
In pedal ganglia of mollusc Clione limacina the growth of axons was studied in motoneurons and interneurons after transections of the wing nerve or of the pedal comissure. Neurons were stained by Lucifer Yellow. In motoneurons, neurites grown both from the transected end of the axon and from the neuron soma spread to all nerve trunks of ipsi- and… (More)
