Interneurones in crab connectives (Carcinus maenas (L.)) DIRECTIONAL STATOCYST FIBRES.

  • P. J. Fraser

Five interneurones in each connective respond directionally to rotation of a crab. Each seems to be activated by one direction of fluid flow in one statocyst canal. The anatomy of two is known and correlates well with a direct input from the receptors of one statocyst. Three of the fibres have input from leg joint proprioceptors. The swimming reflex and a… (More)
