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, a… Expand
NEUROBIOLOGY OF ECHINODERMATA
During the past ten years much information has been added to our knowledge of nerve and muscle systems of echinoderms.
Ultrastructure of the terminals of an identified dopamine-containing neurone marked by intracellular injection of radioactive dopamine
SummaryThe terminal processes of an identified dopamine-containing neurone in the central nervous system of the water snail were located for study with the electron microscope. This was achieved by… Expand
Invertebrate glial cells
- V. Pentreath
Abstract 1. 1. Glial cells make up approximately half the volume of the nervous systems of many invertebrates. 2. 2. The cells exhibit a vast range of structural and functional specializations, both… Expand
‘Giant’ neurons and neurosecretion in the hyponeural tissue of Ophiothrix fragilis abildgaard
Abstract The hyponeural (motor) tissue of Ophiothrix fragilis Abildgaard is concentrated into a series of paired ganglia which lie on the dorsal surface of the radial nerves. Each hyponeural ganglion… Expand
Functions of Invertebrate Glia
- V. Pentreath
Invertebrate glial cells exhibit a vast array of structural and functional specializations. The cells vary markedly at different sites and at different stages of development in individual species,… Expand
Muscle fatigue in chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) and its response to a manual therapeutic approach: A pilot study
Abstract Objectives The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a manual treatment protocol for CFS/ME sufferers. Methods Isometric testing and EMG of the knee extensor muscles were… Expand
