Neurons determining passive defensive response in the pteropod mollusk Clione limacina

Abstract

Neurons responding to tactile stimulation of the head with bursts of action potentials of short latency followed by passive defensive response were found in the pedal ganglia and identified as Pd13. Stimulation of one Pd13 neuron leads to inhibition of the entire locomotor generator. A whole set of neurons, identified as Pℓ2, 3, 4, and 5, activated solely… (More)
