Differential discrimination of appropriate pathways by regenerating identified neurons in Helisoma.

Pathway selection by two different identified neurons (neuron 4 and neuron 5) in the pond snail Helisoma was studied by intracellular injection of the fluorescent dye, Lucifer Yellow CH. The axonal projections of these neurons in normal animals are remarkably constant. Axons of neuron 4 and 5 share a common nerve, the esophageal trunk (ET), which bifurcates… CONTINUE READING
