As part of a comprehensive investigation of the physiology of summer diapause (aestivation) common to the alfalfa weevil (Hypera postica, Gyllenhal) in the south-east United States, we have examined the bioelectrical activity of its central nervous system.

THE CONTROL OF NEUROSECRETION AND DIAPAUSE BY PHYSIOLOGICAL CHANGES IN THE BRAIN OF THE CECROPIA SILKWORM
TLDR
The 26 neurosecretory cells in the brain of the Cecropia silkworm have been shown by Williams to undergo systematic changes in endocrine activity during metamorphosis, which results in electrical silence of the brain throughout the months of diapause. Expand
Spontaneous Electrical Activity in the Brains of Diapausing Insects
TLDR
Recordings of electrical activity in pupae of the cecropia silkworm suggest that at least some activity is maintained, but possibly it is restricted to certain regions of the brain. Expand
Respiratory and compositional study on the aestivating insect, Hypera postica (Gyll.) (Curculionidae)
TLDR
The hypothesis is presented that the alfalfa weevil in South Carolina aestivates but does not hibernate, and the mechanism by which a certain percentage of the population can withstand the winter environment is not known. Expand
