Marine invertebrates, such as lobsters and crabs, deal with a widely and wildly fluctuating temperature environment. Here, we describe the effects of changing temperature on the motor patterns generated by the stomatogastric nervous system of the crab, Cancer borealis. Over a broad range of “permissive” temperatures, the pyloric rhythm increases in(More)
The crustacean stomatogastric ganglion (STG) receives descending neuromodulatory inputs from three anterior ganglia, the paired commissural ganglia (CoGs) and the single esophageal ganglion (OG). In this paper we provide the first detailed and quantitative analyses of the short- and long-term effects of removal of these descending inputs (decentralization)(More)
