The Crustacean Stomatogastric System
A disynaptic sensorimotor pathway in the lobster stomatogastric system.
1. In the lobster Homarus, muscle gm 1 that causes protraction of the medial tooth of the gastric mill system is innervated via a dorsal branch of the anterior gastric nerve by motoneurons (GM)Expand
The pyloric central pattern generator in Crustacea: a set of conditional neuronal oscillators
SummaryIn the stomatogastric nervous system of the Cape lobster,Jasus lalandii, all the neurons comprising the pyloric central pattern generator are cellular oscillators. This was shown by isolatingExpand
Oscillatory neural networks.
Despite the fact that a large number of neuronal oscillators have been described, there are only a few good examples that illustrate how they operate at the cellular level. For most, there is someExpand
Switching of a neuron from one network to another by sensory-induced changes in membrane properties.
A neuron that is an integral member of the pyloric neural network of the lobster stomatogastric nervous system leaves this network and instead fires exclusively with another stomatogastric nervousExpand
Dynamic construction of a neural network from multiple pattern generators in the lobster stomatogastric nervous system
In the stomatogastric nervous system (STNS) of the lobster Homarus gammarus, the rhythmic discharge of a pair of identified modulatory neurons (PS cells) is able to construct de novo a functionalExpand
Structural and functional characterization of a muscle tendon proprioceptor in lobster
A morphological and electrophysiological study was made on a unique primary mechanosensory neuron, the anterior gastric receptor (AGR), previously shown to arise from powerstroke muscle gm1 of theExpand
Construction of a pattern-generating circuit with neurons of different networks
RHYTHMIC motor behaviours are generated within the central nervous system by neuronal circuits called central pattern generators (CPG)1. Although a CPG can produce several forms of the sameExpand
The Crustacean stomatogastric system : a model for the study of central nervous systems
A power forging press in which a press stand is provided with a drive having a flywheel, a spindle and a drive device, and a workpiece support. A ram is mounted for relative movement with respect toExpand
Suppressive control of the crustacean pyloric network by a pair of identified interneurons. I. Modulation of the motor pattern
A pair of identified neuromodulatory neurons, the pyloric suppressor (PS) neurons, can individually and strongly modify the activity of the pyloric network in the stomatogastric nervous system of theExpand
