Song characteristics are age dependent in the willow warbler, Phylloscopus trochilus
Theory predicts that sexually selected characters should be condition dependent if they are to be used as honest signals of male quality. One consequence of this dependence is that young and olderExpand

Neurobiology of echinodermata.
There has been little progress since the classical anatomical studies in understanding the form and function of the nervous system of echinoderms until relatively recently. There is, admittedly, aExpand

The giant neurone system in ophiuroids
SummaryThe radial nerve cords of members of the class Ophiuroidea consist of two parts, the ectoneural and the hyponeural tissues, which are separated by an acellular basal lamina. The hyponeuralExpand

Electrophysiology of cardiac function in teleosts: cholinergically mediated inhibition and rebound excitation
1. A study has been made on the responses of the plaice (Pleuronectes platessa) heart, isolated and in situ to differential vagal stimulation using intra‐ and extracellular recording electrodes. TheExpand

Neurophysiological studies on photic responses in Ophiura ophiura
Abstract 1. 1. Unitary potentials can be recorded from the radial nerve cord of a brittlestar using extracellular electrodes in response to a wide range of sensory parameters. 2. 2. The responses toExpand

A specific ringer solution for the plaice (Pleuronectes platessa L.)
Following analysis of the serum of the blood of the plaice (Pleuronectes platessa L.), a Ringer solution specific for this fish has been devised and tested. It has proved a satisfactory physiologicalExpand
