A central pattern generator (CPG) is defined as a set of neurons whose members work together to generate organized motor output activity. A round-table discussion on central pattern generators was held on November 21, 2012 as part of the Fifth All-Russian Conference on Animal Behavior in Moscow. The main topics of discussion were: 1) the mechanisms of the(More)
Behavioral choice is known to depend on context, i.e., a variety of internal and external factors: previous experience, behavioral state, presence of food, etc. How is the totality of factors determining behavioral choice translated at the cellular level? This review presents neuroethological data providing evidence that context is expressed at the(More)
Previous studies have shown that one version of the coordination of the central buccal generator in the mollusk Lymnaea stagnalis with the rhythm of neuron B2, which controls esophageal motility, is associated with the occurrence of giant hyperpolarization waves on B2 neurons. The present report describes new neurons which appear to be the source of these(More)
