Inking behavior in Aplysia offers a simple test system whereby it is possible to examine the cellular and biophysical determinants of a simple behavior and its ability to undergo a short-term behavioral modification. The features of the behavior and its underlying neural circuit, as well as the intrinsic biophysical properties of the effector motor neurons, have been analyzed. Inking behavior shows a selective sensitivity to long-duration stimuli, which appears due to presence of a voltage… CONTINUE READING
