We developed a cell culture system for thoracic neurons of fifth instar or adult locusts (Locusta migratoria) in order to obtain maximum visualization of cellular morphology and direct access to the neurons for electrophysiological analysis. The dissociated neurons regenerated new neurites in a serum-free defined culture medium, in which they remained viable for up to 3 weeks. Viability of the cells was confirmed by intracellular recordings demonstrating active membrane properties and action… CONTINUE READING
