Homologous Structures in the Nervous Systems of Arthropoda
The Nervous Systems of Invertebrates: An Evolutionary and Comparative Approach
The nervous systems of Cnidarians, Onychophora, Echinodermata, Chelicerata and Annelida are studied.

In both nerves, diameters and glial wrapping of axons increase in the two weeks after fledging, although the changes are more marked in nerve 1C1, which suggests an important rôle in the phasic control of flight.
WIRELESS TRANSMISSION OF MUSCLE POTENTIALS DURING FREE FLIGHT OF A LOCUST
It is to be expected that this new approach will surpass previous studies involving intact but surface-bound animals implanted with long flexible electrodes or animals tethered in a windstream, and should greatly enhance understanding of the processes involved in the neuronal control of unrestricted behaviour.
Basic circuitry of an adult-specific motor program completed with embryogenesis
Evidence for spontaneous song production independent of head ganglia inGryllus campestris L.
Analysis of the time sequences of the chirps and pulses clearly reveal calling songs as well as transitions to courtship and rivalry songs, indicating that the cricket can produce songs even in the absence of neural commands from the head ganglia.

Light- and electron-microscopic analysis of a complex sensory organ: The tegula of Locusta migratoria
A function in relation to wing movements during flight is suggested for the two sensory systems within the “mixed” sense organ, tegula, based on histological and cytological criteria.
A reconsideration of the central pattern generator concept for locust flight
It is shown that even isolated thoracic nerve cord preparations can generate activity, which in all major aspects corresponds to this motor program, and some evidence is provided that the mesothoracic ganglion may be capable of a similar performance.
