  • 15 January 1996
The mechanisms underlying short-term presynaptic facilitation, the enhancement of transmitter release from sensory neurons in Aplysia, induced by serotonin (5-HT), can be divided into two categories:Expand

Learning and memory : a comprehensive reference
The study of Learning and Memory is a central topic in Neuroscience and Psychology. It is also a very good example of a field that has come into maturity on all levels - in the protein chemistry andExpand

Operant Reward Learning in Aplysia: Neuronal Correlates and Mechanisms
Operant conditioning is a form of associative learning through which an animal learns about the consequences of its behavior. Here, we report an appetitive operant conditioning procedure inAplysiaExpand

Identification and characterization of catecholaminergic neuron B65, which initiates and modifies patterned activity in the buccal ganglia of Aplysia.
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 theExpand

Role of Transforming Growth Factor-β in Long-Term Synaptic Facilitation in Aplysia
The role of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) in long-term synaptic facilitation was examined in isolated Aplysia ganglia. Treatment with TGF-β1 induced long-term facilitation (24 and 48 hours),Expand

Levels of Serotonin in the Hemolymph of AplysiaAre Modulated by Light/Dark Cycles and Sensitization Training
Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) modulates the behavior and physiology of both vertebrate and invertebrate animals. Effects of injections of 5-HT and the morphology of the serotonergic systemExpand

Cellular Correlates of Long-Term Sensitization inAplysia
Although in vitro analyses of long-term changes in the sensorimotor connection of Aplysia have been used extensively to understand long-term sensitization, relatively little is known about the waysExpand

Contingent-Dependent Enhancement of Rhythmic Motor Patterns: AnIn Vitro Analog of Operant Conditioning
Operant conditioning is characterized by the contingent reinforcement of a designated behavior. Previously, feeding behavior inAplysia has been demonstrated to be modified by operant conditioning,Expand

Identification and characterization of neurons initiating patterned neural activity in the buccal ganglia of Aplysia.
Two patterns of neural activity were identified in excised buccal ganglia of Aplysia californica. Both are expressed in many cells, and each can be expressed independently. Using cells B4 and B5 asExpand
