We examined the effects of 3 neuropeptides and the bioactive amine 5-HT on identified motoneurons (B15 and B16) and interneurons (B4, B5) involved in the control of feeding behavior in Aplysia californica. The application of egg-laying hormone (ELH), small cardioactive peptide b (SCPb), and 5-HT elicits distinct patterns of synaptically induced bursting in the neurons, while PheMetArgPheamide (FMRFamide) inhibits firing due to synaptic activity. Repetitive IPSPs recorded in B15 and B16 are… CONTINUE READING
