The ventral nerve cord of crayfish contains axons of five pairs of excitatory interneurons, each of which can activate the swimmeret system. Perfusion of the ventral nerve cord with the neuropeptide proctolin also activates the swimmeret system. The experiments reported here were conducted to test the hypothesis that one or more of these excitatory interneurons uses proctolin as a transmitter. Each of the five excitatory axons was located and stimulated separately in an individual crayfish, and… CONTINUE READING
