The effect of cholinergic agonists and antagonists on the central pattern generator of the pharyngeal muscles has been studied in third instar larvae of Drosophila. The pharyngeal muscles are a group of rhythmically active fibers involved in feeding. Bath application of the cholinergic agonists carbachol, muscarine, pilocarpine, and acetylcholine (ACh) to a semiintact preparation including the pharyngeal muscles and the central nervous system (CNS), initiated long-lasting endogenous-like… CONTINUE READING
