The species- and situation-specific sound production of grasshoppers can be stimulated by focal application of both nicotinic and muscarinic receptor agonists into the central body complex of the protocerebrum. Pressure injection of the intrinsic transmitter acetylcholine only elicits fast and short-lived responses related to nicotinic receptor-mediated excitation. Prolonged sound production that includes complex song patterns requires muscarinic receptor-mediated excitation. In addition, basal… CONTINUE READING
