1. The spontaneous behaviour of the hydroid Tubularia results from the activity of a number of pacemaker systems in the polyp, there being a major pacemaker system in the distal stalk (the NP system), another in the hydranth body (the HP system) and individual pacemakers in each of the tentacles. The NP system produces single electrical pulses and bursts of three or more pulses, the HP system itself produces single pulses and short bursts of 2-4 pulses, and the tentacle pacemakers fire… CONTINUE READING
