We demonstrate that the meso- and metathoracic pleuroaxillary flight steering muscle (M85 mesothorax, M114 metathorax) of the migratory locust are each innervated by a single dorsal unpaired median neurone (DUM3,4,5a). The soma of this neurone can be localized by retrograde staining of the motor nerve with Neurobiotin, but not with cobalt salts. The primary neurite projects in the superficial DUM cell tract, and the axons run in nerve roots 3, 4 and 5 and in all their secondary branches. Other… CONTINUE READING
