1. If a dogfish is spinalized, the caudal part of the body (65 segments) will exhibit continuous swimming movements at rest. The speed of locomotion can be increased by various exteroceptive stimuli. As an indicator of the CNS activity the EMG activity of different segments along the body has been recorded simultaneously during swimming at different speeds. The two sides of one segment show alternating EMG activity. 2. During forward swimming there is a lag between the activation of rostral and… CONTINUE READING
