1. Central pathways for bag cell activation were identified by examining the frequency of spontaneous egg laying episodes in animals with central connective lesions. Bilateral lesions of the cerebropleural (but not the cerebropedal) connectives abolished spontaneous egg laying. In contrast, bilateral lesions of all cerebral ganglion peripheral nerves did… CONTINUE READING
