The receptive fields of spiking local interneurons in the locust were defined by making intracellular recordings from them while stimulating mechanoreceptors on the surface of a hindleg. All the interneurons tested have their cell bodies near the ventral midline, in the so-called "midline" group. Those described here receive inputs only from external mechanoreceptors; others receive inputs from internal proprioceptors alone or from receptors of both kinds. The receptors on the surface of a… Expand
The role of spiking local interneurons in shaping the receptive fields of intersegmental interneurons in the locust

TLDR
The inhibition of spiking local and intersegmental interneurons in the mesothoracic ganglion of the locust Schistocerca gregaria could become significant during walking, where the excitatory and inhibitory inputs to an interneuron are likely to be evoked during the different phases of a step cycle.

The receptive fields of motor neurons to a hind leg were mapped by recording intracellularly from their cell bodies or from the muscle fibers they innervate while stimulating mechanoreceptors on theExpand
The organization of receptive fields of an antero-medial group of spiking local interneurones in the locust with exteroceptive inputs from the legs

TLDR
They integrate the mechanosensory signals from a hind leg in parallel with midline spiking local interneurones and should therefore play a role in the expression of local reflexes and suggest that they also influence the coordination between the legs in posture and locomotion. Expand
Reliability and effectiveness of transmission from exteroceptive sensory neurons to spiking local interneurons in the locust

Mechanosensory information from exteroceptive hairs on the legs of a locust is first processed in a segmental ganglion by a midline population of spiking local interneurons for use in adjustments ofExpand
Input and output connections of an anteromedial group of spiking local interneurons in the metathoracic ganglion of the locust
  • T. Nagayama, M. Burrows
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience
  • 1990
TLDR
An anteromedial group of spiking local interneurons in the metathoracic ganglion of the locust is determined to determine the input connections that shape their mechanoreceptive fields on a hindleg and the output connections that define their effects on hindleg motor neurons. Expand
The distribution of synapses on the two fields of neurites of spiking local interneurones in the locust
TLDR
The distribution of synapses in these two fields was revealed by injecting HRP intracellularly into an interneurone following its physiological characterization, and the absence of varicosities in the ventral field cannot be correlated with a lack of output synapses. Expand
Inhibitory interactions between spiking and nonspiking local interneurons in the locust

TLDR
Viewed in this behavioral context, the pattern of connections between the local interneurons forms the basis of the circuitry for the local reflex adjustments of posture and locomotion. Expand
Processing of gustatory information by spiking local interneurons in the locust.

  • Journal of neurophysiology

TLDR
The responses of a population of spiking local interneurons, with somata at the ventral midline of the metathoracic ganglion, during stimulation of chemo- and mechanoreceptors on the legs of locusts are analyzed. Expand
Parallel processing of proprioceptive signals by spiking local interneurons and motor neurons in the locust
  • M. Burrows

  • The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience
  • 1987
TLDR
Staining the central projections of the afferent neurons with dye introduced into their axons at the receptor, and the intracellular injection of dye into motor neurons and interneurons, shows that the branches of all 3 types of neuron overlap in specific regions of neuropile. Expand
Convergence of mechanosensory afferents from different classes of exteroceptors onto spiking local interneurons in the locust

  • 1994
TLDR
This article analyzes the mechanisms by which the tactile sensory information from different types of receptor is collated in the CNS so that spatial information is preserved and should enhance sensitivity. Expand
