1. The sensory cells of about 30 hairs (one cell per hair) on the prothoracic basisternum ofLocusta migratoria, which are 500–600 μm long and have a very soft articulation, project to the contralateral side of the prothoracic ganglion. The fibres run to characteristic ganglionic areas: the ventral-most ventral association center and the median ventral tract. 2. A preparation was made which allowed stimulation of the hairs exclusively by air movements produced by air vibration (near-field of a… CONTINUE READING
