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.

Internal Viscosity of the Red Blood Cell and the Capillary Inversion Phenomena as Factors in Oxygen Transport

TLDR
The vascular system serves not only for irrigation or collection of refuse, but it is also a highway for transit of cells and chemical agents required for control or defence of the integrity of the circulation and, thus, the life itself.

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.

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.
