Action and variation potential electrical signals in higher plants
Published : 01 January 2021 doi: 10.33472/AFJBS.3.1.2021.1-18 Article Info Abstract This review evaluates the types of electrical signals (ESs) in plants, generation and propagation of various ESs,Expand
Solitary waves in soybean induced by localized thermal stress
TLDR
Real time measurements using modern data acquisition techniques are employed to detect ultra fast action potentials in green plants induced by localized heat stress and show that plants transmit solitary waves and that the speed of action potential propagation in green Plants is similar to the speed in mammalians, varying from a few meters per second up to 105 m/s.

The excitability of plant cells: With a special emphasis on characean internodal cells
  • R. Wayne
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Botanical Review
  • 2008
TLDR
This review describes the basic principles of electrophysiology using the generation of an action potential in characean internodal cells as a pedagogical tool and how the studies of electrical and chemical communication in physiology and development progressed in the botanical and zoological disciplines. Expand
Environmental stimuli and physiological responses: The current view on electrical signalling
TLDR
It was shown that apart from hydraulic signals, electric signals also play a significant role in root-to-shoot communication of drought-stressed plants and evidence was found for a link between electrical signals and photosynthesis as well as respiration. Expand
Electrical signals and their physiological significance in plants.
TLDR
The present review will focus on the generation and propagation of various electrical signals, their ways of transmission within the plant body and various physiological effects. Expand
Rapid plant movements triggered by action potentials

  • 2006
Rapid bendings of the pulvinus inMimosa pudica, of the trap lobes inDionaea muscipula andAldrovanda vesiculosa, and of the tentacle in Drosera are triggered by action potentials in their motor cells.Expand

Rhythmic Stem Extension Growth and Leaf Movements as Markers of Plant Behaviour: the Integral Output from Endogenous and Environmental Signals
With the model systems Chenopodium rubrum (short-day plant) and Chenopodium murale (long-day plant), growth and behaviour have been studied in response to photoand thermoperiod. With time-lapseExpand
The philosophy of plant neurobiology: a manifesto
TLDR
This manifesto outlines a road map for the establishment and development of a new subject—the Philosophy of Plant Neurobiology—, a new field of research emerging at the intersection of the philosophy of cognitive science and plant neurobiology. Expand
At the Roots of Plant Neurobiology
If biology throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was dominated by the metaphor of the machine, the metaphor underlying twenty first century biology is that of the network or web. A rapidExpand

Physiology of Rapid Movements in Higher Plants
TLDR
This review is not intended to be a comprehensive resume of all published works on the movements, but will return to some of the important older literature which provides a basis for understanding the mechanism. Expand
The role of propagated skin impulses in the sensory system of young tadpoles
  • A. Roberts
  • Biology
  • Zeitschrift für vergleichende Physiologie
  • 2004
TLDR
It is concluded that, for a limited period in development, the skin impulse is part of the normal response to stimulation, and that the impulse is probably necessary for excitation of the central nervous system and the consequent behavioural response. Expand
Receptor potentials and action potentials in Drosera tentacles
TLDR
Variation of apparent amplitude of the action potentials may result from postulated variation in the resistance of receptor membranes, which commonly decreases as the receptor potential deviates from the baseline and increases as it returns. Expand
Spontaneous electrical activity in shoots of Ipomoea, Pisum and Xanthium
TLDR
Extracellular recordings from light-grown shoots of Ipomoea and Xanthium contain trains of spontaneous fluctuations which resemble action potentials, and a greater number of the individual spikes have a relatively slow time course and a higher apparent amplitude. Expand
An electrophysiological study of the tentacle-regulating potentials in Noctiluca.
TLDR
Several of the findings indicate that the active membrane faces the vacuole and is electrotonically isolated from the perinuclear cytoplasm except through the Vacuole, which appears to consist of a pre-sp spike pacemaker potential and an action potential having a prolonged post-spike plateau.

Neuroid Conduction and the Evolution of Conducting Tissues
  • G. Mackie
  • Medicine, Biology
  • The Quarterly Review of Biology
  • 1970
TLDR
Neuroid conduction in all these forms provides a rapid and efficient method of information transfer and is typically associated with the spread of protective and locomotory responses and is general rather than local in effect. Expand
Bioelectric regulation of tentacle movement in a dinoflagellate.
TLDR
Simultaneous recordings of intracellular potentials and movements of the tentacle showed a consistent temporal relationship between potential changes and subsequent movement, and it is proposed that contraction of microtubules is the immediate cause of tentacle movements. Expand
Properties of action potentials in Drosera tentacles
SummaryAction potentials of Drosera tentacles resemble those of vertebrate peripheral nerves in that they appear to be comprised of relatively uniform spikes, variable shoulders or negativeExpand
The properties and propagation of a cardiac-like impulse in the skin of young tadpoles
TLDR
The ‘neuroid’ conduction system in the skin of Xenopus tadpoles is compared to similar systems in coelenterates and to the propagation of the vertebrate cardiac impulse. Expand
