Neural Control of Heart Beat in the African Giant Snail, Achatina


The synaptic connections between identified heart regulatory neurones were examined in the central nervous system of the African giant snail, Achatina fulica Ferussac. Two cerebral ganglion cells, the dorsal right and left cerebral distinct neurones (d-RCDN and d-LCDN), were found to have excitatory connections with several neurones in the suboesophageal… (More)
