1.One of the large descending brain neurones in each half of the central nervous system of a locust is probably important in regulating the attitude of the locust9s flight in the pitch plane. This function is suggested by a consideration of the stimuli which excite the interneurones, and of the muscles whose motoneurones they excite. 2. Each of these interneurones has its cell body in the protocerebrum and its axon descends the ipsilateral connective and has branches in all of the thoracic… Expand
