  • In terrestrial gastropod mollusks (slugs and snails), olfaction is the dominant sensory modality guiding various kinds of behavior. [...] Key Method In the present study, the activity evoked by electrical stimulation of the olfactory nerves, the superior and inferior tentacle nerves, was recorded optically from the whole cerebral ganglion of the terrestrial slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi. The results indicated that the evoked activity in the PC and the MtC showed two specific spatio-temporal patterns. First, when…Expand Abstract
