A machine was used to impose controlled movements, closely resembling natural movements, on some of the swimmerets of crayfish with their ventral nerve cords cut between thorax and abdomen. The rhythm of the unrestrained swimmerets could be entrained to the imposed frequency. Full entrainment occurred most readily when three or four swimmerets were controlled and was uncommon with two. When one was controlled, only partial entrainment was seen. A small proportion of preparations could not be… CONTINUE READING
