...Nimrod Miller; Ayelet Katzoff; Abraham J. Susswein SUMMARY Aplysia egg laying is a complex behavior requiring synchronized activity in many organs. Aspects of the behavior are synchronized via the direct effects of peptide bag cell neurohormones and via stimuli arising during the behavior. Stimuli...

...Kosei Sasaki; Fumihiro Morishita; Yasuo Furukawa SUMMARY The arterial system of the marine mollusc Aplysia consists of three major arteries. One of them, the abdominal aorta, has a sphincter (the vasoconstrictor muscle) at the base of the artery. Contraction of this muscle reduces the blood flow...

...Graham P. Ferguson; David W. Parsons; Andries Ter Maat; Harold M. Pinsker ABSTRACT The neuroendocrine bag cells of the hermaphroditic marine gastropod, Aplysia , secrete peptide hormones that induce release of ripe eggs from the ovotestis. The egg string is subsequently deposited on the substrate...

...Roger P. Croll ABSTRACT The frequency of respiratory pumping in Aplysia increases when CO 2 is bubbled through the bathing sea water. Air, O 2 and N 2 do not have this effect. The sensitivity to CO 2 may be mediated by receptors which are sensitive to pH changes within the range encountered during...

...R. D. Hawkins ABSTRACT The defensive siphon and gill withdrawal of Aplysia is a simple reflex, mediated by a well-defined neural circuit, that exhibits sensitization in response to strong stimulation of the tail. The siphon withdrawal reflex also exhibits classical conditioning when a weak stimulus...
