Evidence for an excitatory transmitter role of serotonin in molluscan central synapses.
TLDR
The chapter summarizes the available information supporting the hypothesis that 5-HT is the natural transmitter of synaptic excitation to central neurons of some particular mollusks and demonstrates the effect of d -tubocurarine on both the ACh receptors and the end plate potential at the vertebrate neuromuscular junction.

The Synaptic Transmission and Related Phenomena in Insects
TLDR
The electrophysiological evidence outlined in this chapter is in essential agreement with the hypothesis of a cholinergic synaptic transmission in insects: several anticholinesterasic substances, such as eserine and DFP (which are known to favour the accumulation of ACh. in synaptic zones and extend postsynaptic membranes depolarization) induce either intense after-discharges following a single presynaptic stimulation or in some cases a spontaneous activity.

Observations on the ultrastructure of synapses in some pulmonate molluscs

TLDR
Microphysiological and biochemical work has demonstrated in these ganglia the existence of cholinergic and non-cholinergic synaptic transmitters and the “neurosecretory” character of NSV is discussed and its possible participation in nervous activity is postulated. Expand
The Brain Stem Reticular Core—An Integrative Matrix
TLDR
A panoramic range of activities suggests that the reticular core serving a keystone role in brain function and combines, perhaps in larval form, the prototype of every neural process should serve as a convenient paradigm upon which brain system models may be shaped. Expand
Further studies on synaptic transmission in insects. I. External recording of synaptic potentials in a single giant axon of the cockroach, Periplaneta americana L.
1. The dissection of a small length of a giant axon between the 5th and the 6th ganglia of the abdominal nerve cord of the cockroach Periplaneta americana allows extracellular recordings ofExpand

TLDR
The results of this study support the concept of a physiologically and anatomically patterned, as opposed to a randomly functioning, neuropil. Expand
MORPHOLOGICAL AND FUNCTIONAL PROPERTIES OF IDENTIFIED NEURONS IN THE ABDOMINAL GANGLION OF APLYSIA CALIFORNICAl
THE ABDOMINAL GANGLION of the marine gastropod, ApZysia, is a valuable preparation for cellular electrophysiological studies. In large animals, most small nerve cells in this ganglion are comparableExpand
Mechanism of heterosynaptic facilitation in the giant cell of the abdominal ganglion of Aplysia depilans.
TLDR
The analysis of the mechanism underlying this heterosynaptic facilitation in the giant cell was facilitated by the reliable identification of the right upperquadrant giant cell, as well as its large size. Expand
Evidence that synaptic transmission between giant interneurons and identified thoracic interneurons in the cockroach is cholinergic.
TLDR
The pharmacological specificity of transmission at the vGI to TIA connections was similar to that previously reported for nicotinic, cholinergic synapses in insects, suggesting that the transmitter released by vGIs at these synapses is acetylcholine. Expand
Nerve pathways and reflex siphon withdrawal in the surf clam.
  • D. Mellon
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of experimental biology
  • 1965
TLDR
It is concluded from several lines of evidence that fast reflex pathways within the ganglion are monosynaptic in nature and make it possible to account for after discharges in the efferent pathways lasting a second or more. Expand
