The innervation of four functionally different muscles (subalar, remotor 1, remotor 2, pleuroalar), all served by the same nerve branch, was studied in both winged segments of the locust, Locusta migratoria. Several anatomical techniques were applied: With the cobalt backfill and silver intensification technique four cell types (motoneurone, dorsal unpaired median neurone, common inhibitory neurone, and small median neurone) were demonstrated. Serial sections enabled the morphology of the… CONTINUE READING
