The effects of serotonin injection on behavioral states and feeding in Pleurobranchaea californica and behavioral states and spontaneous behaviors in Aplysia californica were examined. Serotonin (10−7 moles/kg body wt) increased behavioral state level in both species from still states to alert and moving states. Pleurobranchaea injected with serotonin demonstrated decreases in latency and threshold to various feeding responses when injected with serotonin. In addition, Aplysia injected with… Expand
