During production of song patterns by the semi-isolated CNS of Gryllus campestris, intracellullar recordings were made in fibers of the mesothoracic ganglion, including synaptic areas of identified wing opener and closer motor neurons. The normal calling song pattern and some transitional songs toward courtship and toward aggression were generated by the CNS in the absence of any phasic sensory timing (Figs. 1, 4). Intracellular activity of the opener motor neurons was characterized by an… CONTINUE READING
