...Kevin M. Crisp; Karen A. Mesce SUMMARY The biological mechanisms of behavioral selection, as it relates to locomotion, are far from understood, even in relatively simple invertebrate animals. In the medicinal leech, Hirudo medicinalis , the decision to swim is distributed across populations of swim...

...Kevin M. Crisp; Karen A. Mesce SUMMARY It is widely appreciated that the selection and modulation of locomotor circuits are dependent on the actions of higher-order projection neurons. In the leech, Hirudo medicinalis, locomotion is modulated by a number of cephalic projection neurons that descend...

... dorsal integument of the leech Hirudo medicinalis , and we have established a model of Na + uptake. In the present study, we investigated the effect of long-term acclimation on transintegumental ion transport by adapting leeches to high-salinity conditions. We dissected segments of dorsal integument and...
