Summary In the marine hypotrich Euplotes vannus, the coupling of behavioural elements to shifts in the freely fluctuating membrane potential was investigated by use of a computerized locomotion track evaluation system. Potential shifts were attributed to beating of cirri by single-image analysis of simultaneous video-tape-recordings. Walking speed rhythmically decreases for 150–200 ms, and increases for 550–670 ms with a frequency of ~ 1.3/s. This pattern is caused by repetitive, spontaneous… Expand
