1. The tail withdrawal reflex is mediated by a monosynaptic circuit composed of tail sensory and motor neurons, but there appear to be additional neuronal elements that also contribute to the reflex. A newly identified interneuron, called LP117, was located in the pleural ganglion. This neuron formed a parallel excitatory pathway between sensory and motor neurons. The distinguishing feature of LP117 was its ability to elicit a long-lasting (5-100 s) excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP) in… CONTINUE READING
