The neuronal control of dragonfly flight. I. Anatomy.

The mechanical action and innervation of the major flight muscles of dragonflies are described. All flight muscles investigated are innervated by at least 3 motor neurones and one by as many as 15. Cell bodies of motor neurones that innervate the same muscle are clustered together and have similar, widespread dendritic branching patterns. Motor neurones of… CONTINUE READING
