The neural supply of the dorsal lingitudinal muscles in successive segments from the prothorax to the pregenital abdomen of adult and larval instar locusts (Locusta migratoria and Schistocerca gregaria) has been studied. Stainings have also been carried out for embryos. The whole complement consists of three muscles, of which one or both of the smaller ones degenerate in the pterothoracic segments during early imaginal life. Based on morphological criteria, several motoneurone types can be… 
Motor supply of the dorsal longitudinal muscles II: Comparison of motoneurone sets in Tracheata
TLDR
The results support the idea that the structure of MNs in the largest present taxon of Insecta, the Dicondylia, is conserved irrespective of crucial changes in the periphery (e.g. primarily apterygote vs oteryGote).
Common and specific inhibitory motor neurons innervate the intersegmental muscles in the locust thorax
TLDR
The inhibitory innervation of the intersegmental muscles between the first and the second thoracic segment of the migratory locust, Locusta migratoria, was investigated using neuroanatomical, immunocytochemical and electrophysiological techniques and has been regarded as the first specific inhibitor ever observed in insect neuromuscular assemblies.
Motoneurons, DUM cells, and sensory neurons in an insect thoracic ganglion: A tracing study in the stick insect Carausius morosus
TLDR
The general neuroanatomical layout of motoneurons matches the general orthopteran pattern and numbers and details of their structure by far exceed previously published data.
On the Origin of Grasshopper Oviposition Behavior: Structural Homology in Pregenital and Genital Motor Systems
TLDR
Comparisons support the idea that the oviposition behavior of genital segments is built upon a homologous, segmentally iterated motor infrastructure located in the pregenital abdomen of male and female grasshoppers.
Functional morphology and neuronal innervation of the prothoracic defence gland in Timema
TLDR
The hypothesis that in euphasmids, the muscular part of the gland evolved from the dorsal longitudinal neck muscles in all Polyneoptera also innervate the defence glands in phasmids is supported.
Inhibitory motor neurones supply body wall muscles in the locust abdomen
SUMMARY Inhibitory motor neurones in the abdominal ganglia of the locust Locusta migratoria were identified by combining extra- and intracellular electrophysiology, labelling of motor neurones by
Multiple Identified Neurons and Peripheral Nerves Innervating the Prothoracic Defense Glands in Stick Insects Reveal Evolutionary Conserved and Novel Elements of a Chemical Defense System
TLDR
The innervating nerves for dorsal longitudinal muscles are conserved in stick insects, while the neuronal control system was specialized with conserved mot oneurons for the persisting neck muscles, and evolutionarily novel suboesophageal and prothoracic motoneurons innervated the defense gland.
Architectural Principles and Evolution of the Arthropod Central Nervous System
TLDR
It is shown that neurobiology is one of the most active fields of arthropod research, and the central nervous system and visual organs of neglected taxa such as Myriapoda have been analyzed with contemporary techniques.

Homonomies within the ventral muscle system and the associated motoneurons in the locust, Schistocerca gregaria (Insecta, Caelifera)
TLDR
It becomes apparent that muscles and their supplying MNs are, in principle, independent elements which might be subjected autonomously to ontogenetic processes and in the search for the basic segmental Bauplan depending on homonomous structures, muscles and MNs have to be regarded as separate entities.
Motor supply of the dorsal longitudinal muscles II: Comparison of motoneurone sets in Tracheata
TLDR
The results support the idea that the structure of MNs in the largest present taxon of Insecta, the Dicondylia, is conserved irrespective of crucial changes in the periphery (e.g. primarily apterygote vs oteryGote).
Structural homology of identified motoneurones in larval and adult stages of hemi‐ and holometabolous insects
TLDR
The results support the notion that the structure of these neurones is conserved irrespectively of changes in the periphery and strategy of postembryonic development.
Serial homologies of the motor neurons of the dorsal intersegmental muscles of the cockroach, Periplaneta americana (L.)
The types and locations of serially homologous motor neurons of the dorsal muscles in the cockroach Periplaneta americana remain rather constant regardless of the various adaptations of their muscles
Identified neurons in an insect embryo: The pattern of neurons innervating the metathoracic leg of the locust
TLDR
The population of motorneurons which send axons to the metathoracic leg of the locust embryo has been stained by a cobalt backfilling technique and results are discussed with respect to mechanisms for neuron determination and differentiation.

TLDR
The maps show that the neuroblasts are as reliable in their number and arrangement as the adult cells they produce, and are intended as a first step in an analysis of the relation between the progeny of different neuroblast and the family of neurons which each neuroblast produces.
Histological characterization of neurones innervating functionally different muscles of Locusta
TLDR
The innervation of four functionally different muscles, all served by the same nerve branch, was studied in both winged segments of the locust, Locusta migratoria to determine the total innervation for each muscle.
Presynaptic terminals persist following degeneration of "flight" muscle during development of a flightless grasshopper.
TLDR
The finding that presynaptic terminals persist in the absence of the muscle indicates that the muscle and its innervation follow programs of development that are at least partially independent and reinforces the concept that in insects motorneurons, and perhaps neurons in general, are not dependent upon trophic influences from their targets for survival and maintenance of their differentiated phenotype.
Embryonic development and evolutionary origin of the Orthopteran auditory organs.
TLDR
The ontogenetic origin of these two types of auditory organs is described, comparative developmental studies are used to identify their segmental homologs, and on the basis of homology postulate their evolutionary origin.
