1. In Xenopus embryos, the frequency of natural and fictive swimming usually drops slowly as swimming continues but can increase following stimulation of the skin or dimming of the illumination. We have investigated whether such increases are associated with an increase in the number of neurones active at higher frequencies. 2. Recordings from ventral presumed motoneurones show that these were reliably active at all swimming frequencies. 3. Recordings from more dorsal presumed interneurones… CONTINUE READING
