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
Zur Feinstruktur des dorsalen Riesenfasersystems im Bauchmark des Regenwurms
TLDR
The segmentally arranged somata of the dorsal giant fibres in the ventral nerve cord of the earthworms Lumbricus terrestris L., is described and these neurones are compared with other neurones of invertebrates and vertebrates.

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.

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
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
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,
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.

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.
Nerve conduction theory: Some mathematical consequences of Bernstein's model
The generally accepted permeability theory of nerve conduction is presented in mathematical form. The resulting velocity formula is found to agree well with data on squid giant axon, but predicts
CONDUCTION VELOCITY AND DIAMETER OF NERVE FIBERS
TLDR
The method employed is a favorable one from the standpoint of the conservation of fibers, as dissection is limited to freeing the nerves of adherent fascia, and it is not necessary to use small strands.
