The central projections of the stretch receptor neurons of crayfish: segmental gradients of synaptic probability and strength.


The 20 stretch receptor neurons (SRs) of the crayfish abdomen send axons into the CNS that then project both to the brain and to the last abdominal ganglion, G6 (Bastiani and Mulloney, 1988). In G6, we recorded intracellularly from different kinds of neurons postsynaptic to SR axons. In a sample of 100 postsynaptic neurons, 59 synapsed with both SR1 and SR2… (More)
