1. In intactHomarus gammarus, the swimmeret motor patterns present during the startle response and in gravid females, are very different. Kinetics and electromyograms (EMGs) reveal that the major difference is that the curler muscles of the rami (endopodite and exopodite) are active in the first response and silent in the second (Figs. 2, 3, 4). 2. An in vitro preparation has been used (Fig. 1) to analyze the activity of the curler motor neurons (MNs). In this preparation, all peripheral… CONTINUE READING
