The pulmonate snail Melampus bidentatus regenerates central nervous tracts following commissurotomy, connective transection, and cerebral ganglion ablation. Our goal was to determine whether or not neural regrowth within the central nervous system restored behaviors disrupted by lesions. One behavior that is disrupted by commissurotomy is retraction of facial structures that are contralateral to a stimulated facial region, a response that normally accompanies the ipsilateral retraction… CONTINUE READING
