Identified paracerebral feeding command interneurons (PCNs) in the brain of the mollusc Pleurobranchaea excite other identified PCNs by means of a chemical polysynaptic pathway whose efficacy is reduced by food avoidance training (conditionally paired food and electric shock). The purpose of the present study was to identify the neurons comprising this(More)
A series of 38 experiments were performed in five conscious goats at air temperatures of +20 degrees C or +30 degrees C to see whether a temperature dependence of spinal cord signal transmission affects the relationships between body temperature and metabolic rate (MR) or respiratory evaporative heat loss (REHL). Prior to the experiments the animals(More)
