The occurrence of the uropod steering response as one of the equilibrium reflexes to body rolling in crayfish is significantly facilitated if the stimulus is given while the animal is performing the abdominal posture movement. This facilitation of the descending statocyst pathway by the abdominal posture system takes place between the uropod motor neurons and the statocyst interneurons, which directly project from the brain to the terminal abdominal ganglion where the motor neurons originate… CONTINUE READING
