The Rate of Conduction in Stretched and Unstretched Nerves
TLDR
The occurrence of increased activity of the thyroid gland in rainbow trout at the time of transformation from parr to silvery smolt and the time factor in chromatophore responses is studied.

1. The conduction velocity of the compound action potential of peripheral nerves shows compensatory acclimation to temperature in a fish, a snail, a crab, and probably also in the frog. The heat and
Funktionelle anatomie der dorsalen riesenfaser-systeme von Lumbricus terrestris L. (Annelida, Oligoehaeta)
The microanatomy of the dorsal giant fibers of Lumbricus terrestris is described systematically. Moreover, two afferent giant interneurons and 4 pairs of giant motor neurons are individually

RésuméLes neurocordes dorsales chez Eisenia foetida sont entourées de fibres conjonctives plus grossières qui prolongent le périlemme recouvrant la chaîne nerveuse et, intérieurement, de fibrilles
Licht- und elektronenmikroskopische Studien am Nervensystem des Regenwurms

Mikroanatomic des Bauchmarks von Lumbricus terrestris L. (Annelida, Oligochaeta)
AbstractNerve cells and tracts in the ventral nerve cord of the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris are thoroughly described and partly individually identified: sensory bundles, ventral giant fibers,
Monoaminergic mechanisms in the nervous system of Lumbricus terrestris (L.)

TLDR
It is established that the adrenergic neurons in the stomatogastric nervous system have an exciting function on the pharynx, whereas a direct monoaminergic influence of the muscular movements of the intestine probably does not exist.
Overlapping sensory fields of the giant fiber systems in the earthworm
TLDR
Insec t s h a v e n u m e r o u s sense o rgans in which modif ied dendr i t i c endings , sensory cilia, are i n t i m a t e l y assoc ia ted w i th t he cuticle, appears to be a mechanochemorecep to r.
Rapid escape reflexes in aquatic oligochaetes: variations in design and function of evolutionarily conserved giant fiber systems
TLDR
It is hypothesized that differential predation pressures, together with fundamental differences in lifestyle and habitat, have led to this divergence in the structure and function of evolutionarily conserved sets of homologous giant interneurons.

This paper will be restricted to the synapses of ganglia and the spinal cord and to the neuro-muscular junctions of skeletal muscle (henceforth, collectively referred to as synapses), because,
Conduction velocity and myelin thickness in regenerating nerve fibres
TLDR
The assertion that any of these variablesaxon diameter, total fibre diameter, myelin sheath thickness, or internodal distance-controls conduction velocity is consistent with the available experimental evidence favouring a relationship between conduction Velocity and fibre diameter is made.

The present work confirms the conclusion of Friedländer and others that the giant fibres mediate the end-to-end shortening reaction in the earthworm. The chief concern has been to investigate

TLDR
Their identification of the active structures with particular giant fibres was rather convincingly inferred, and this has now been confirmed by direct micromanipulation as described in § B.
FUNCTIONAL ORGANIZATION OF THE GIANT FIBER SYSTEM OF LUMBRICUS
TLDR
complex systems of nerve fibers much larger than any others in the same animal have been evolved several times, apparently independently, in the animal kingdom.
Motor Response from Giant Fibres in the Earthworm
TLDR
It is shown that the median giant will only conduct backwards and the laterals forwards, and that the two laterals are interconnected and act in unison independently of the median.
