Do Decapod Crustaceans Have Nociceptors for Extreme pH?

Abstract

BACKGROUND Nociception is the physiological detection of noxious stimuli. Because of its obvious importance, nociception is expected to be widespread across animal taxa and to trigger robust behaviours reliably. Nociception in invertebrates, such as crustaceans, is poorly studied. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS THREE DECAPOD CRUSTACEAN SPECIES WERE TESTED… (More)
