[Transmitter-dependent involvement of the respiratory interneurons in the locomotor rhythm in the pulmonate mollusc Lymnaea].

Abstract

Pedal cell RPeD1 of the pond snail L. stagnalis becomes involved in a central rhythm identified as an activity of the central pattern generator (CPG) for locomotion. The RPeD1 rhythm developed as driven by a synaptic input in isolated CNS preparations treated with 0.05 mM serotonin (5HT) or 0.1 mM 5-hydroxytryptophan (5HTP). The 5HT-induced co-ordinated rhythmic activity was retained by each of two pedal ganglia after complete isolation thus suggesting that the respective CPG lies entirely within the pedal portion of the CNS and is paired. The findings suggest that the RPeD1 switching from one network to another represents a neurotransmitter-dependent phenomenon.
