The forewing stretch receptor (SR) neuron makes monosynaptic connections with wing depressor motoneurons; in this article the pharmacology of its output onto the first basalar motoneuron (BA1) has been investigated. The SR, like other insect afferents that have been studied so far, appears to be cholinergic; transmission was suppressed reversibly by the nicotinic antagonist gallamine (10(-4) M) and irreversibly by alpha-bungarotoxin (10(-6) M). The choline reuptake blocker hemicholinium-3 (10… CONTINUE READING
