Presumptive pedal ganglia motor neurons involved in pedal wave generation in the foot of Aplysia were examined. Pedal motor neurons fired tonicly in the absence of pedal waves, but exhibited bursting with constant phase angles during pedal wave generation. Motor neurons which burst both in and 180 degrees out of phase with the pedal wave were recorded. The relative latency of neurons firing at large phase angles was more variable than that of neurons firing at small phase angles. Pedal neurons… CONTINUE READING
