Studies of the stomatogastric nervous systems of lobsters and crabs have led to numerous insights into the cellular and circuit mechanisms that generate rhythmic motor patterns. The small number of easily identifiable neurons allowed the establishment of connectivity diagrams among the neurons of the stomatogastric ganglion. We now know that (a) neuromodulatory substances reconfigure circuit dynamics by altering synaptic strength and voltage-dependent conductances and (b) individual neurons can… Expand
The complexity of small circuits: the stomatogastric nervous system
TLDR
New findings underlining that different levels of dynamics taking place at different time scales all interact in multiple ways are focused on, showing that dynamic interactions convey robustness to circuit operation, while facilitating the flexibility of producing multiple circuit outputs. Expand
Circuit dynamics in lobster stomatogastric ganglion based on winnerless competition network
Abstract The research of the circuit dynamics of the lobster stomatogastric ganglion (STG) inspires the understanding of the roles that regulates the rhythm of the lobster STG. In this paper, theExpand
MonoAminergic Receptors in the Stomatogastric Nervous System: Characterization and Localization in Panulirus Interruptus
TLDR
A heterologous expression system is used to show that G protein couplings and signaling properties of monoaminergic receptors are strongly conserved among vertebrate and invertebrate species and further shows that DAR-G protein coupling in the stomatogastric nervous system are unique for a given receptor subtype.

Homarus Americanus Stomatogastric Nervous System Dissection
TLDR
The stomatogastric nervous system of the American lobster has been established as a model system for studying rhythm generating networks and neuromodulation of networks and fine dissection techniques are used to isolate the STNS from the stomach, resulting in a nervous system preparation available for electrophysiological recordings.

TLDR
The crustacean stomatogastric nervous system is one of the premier systems to study neuromodulation and its effects on motor pattern generation at the cellular level, and it contains the extensively modulated central pattern generators that drive the gastric mill and pyloric rhythms. Expand
Analysis and modelling of the PY complex in the pyloric circuit of the crab stomatogastric ganglion
TLDR
MATLAB R © was used to create a Hodgkin-Huxley based model of the pyloric constrictor pylor dilator neurons (PDs) with parameters that could capture the dynamics of neuromodulation. Expand
Sloppy morphological tuning in identified neurons of the crustacean stomatogastric ganglion
TLDR
High-resolution confocal microscopy and custom computational tools are utilized to characterize the morphologies of four neuron types in the stomatogastric ganglion (STG) of the crab Cancer borealis and find that STG neurons do not adhere to prevailing hypotheses regarding wiring optimization principles.

Characterization of a descending pathway: activation and effects on motor patterns in the brachyuran crustacean stomatogastric nervous system
TLDR
The IV neurons of the crab Cancer pagurus were capable of synchronizing the activities of different motor circuits, which demonstrates the regulation of motor patterns by higher-order neuronal centers. Expand
Maintaining phase of the crustacean tri-phasic pyloric rhythm
TLDR
A model network of the pyloric rhythm of the crustacean stomatogastric ganglion consisting of an oscillator neuron that inhibits two reciprocally inhibitory follower neurons is constructed and analyzed. Expand
How can motor systems retain performance over a wide temperature range? Lessons from the crustacean stomatogastric nervous system
TLDR
Experimental and computational approaches are presented that provide insight into how the nervous system can be stable to a global perturbation, such as temperature, in spite of the fact that all biological processes are temperature dependent. Expand

Dynamic construction of a neural network from multiple pattern generators in the lobster stomatogastric nervous system
TLDR
The data suggest that the role of PS in massively restructuring stomatogastric output is to generate a unique motor pattern appropriate for swallowing-like behavior, and demonstrate that a neural network may not exist as a predefined entity within the CNS, but may be dynamically assembled according to changing behavioral circumstances.

TLDR
The morphology of all STG neurons belonging to the two circuits that produce the well‐described pyloric and gastric rhythms in the lobster, Homarus americanus are described for the first time. Expand
Pattern generation in the lobster (Panulirus) stomatogastric ganglion
TLDR
Certain properties of the system enhance switch-like on/off activity in each cell, which could contribute to burst generation and to appropriate phasing of bursts in the activity cycle. Expand

TLDR
A qualitative explanation of three important aspects of the pyloric motor pattern is presented, based on the intrinsic properties of pylric neurons and the systematic properties of the network they form. Expand

TLDR
Four factors contribute to pattern generation in the pyloric network of the lobster stomatogastric ganglion and the roles and importance of the three most important factors were qualitatively summarized in a chart specifying the activity of the network as a function of its intactness. Expand
Ultrastructure of the stomatogastric ganglion neuropil of the crab, Cancer borealis
TLDR
The stomatogastric ganglion of the crab, Cancer borealis, contains the neural networks responsible for rhythmic pattern generation of the foregut, and it is shown that a single modulatory input makes only classical synapses and not neurohemal‐like profiles, although some modulators are found in both these profile types.

Localization of monoamine fluroscence in the stomatogastric nervous system of lobsters
TLDR
Formaldehyde-induced fluorescence in freeze-dried specimens is employed, a microscopic histochemical technique which demonstrates anatomical structures containing particular putative transmitters, indoleamines and catecholamines, and indicates that the catechlaminergic fluorescence is dopaminergic since tests for norepinephrine are negative while concomitant tests for dopamine are positive.

TLDR
This work has shown clear parallels with other invertebrate and vertebrate motor systems in the crustacean stomatogastric nervous system, and these parallels are likely to have implications for the design and operation of future nervous systems in crustaceans. Expand

TLDR
The Stomatogastric ganglion of Panulirus interruptus contains about 30 neurons, and controls the movements of the lobster's stomach, and a group of six neurons which drive the stomach's lateral teeth are described. Expand
