... of jet velocity and other jet parameters in squid have been reported. We used digital particle imaging velocimetry (DPIV) to visualize the jet flow of adult long-finned squid Loligo pealei (mantle length, L m =27.1±3.0 cm, mean ± s . d .) swimming in a flume over a wide range of speeds(10.1-59.3 cm s -1...

... can be ranked from coldest to warmest as follows: Loligo opalescens>Loligo pealei>Loligo plei>Sepioteuthis sepioidea . Action potential conduction velocities and rise times,recorded at many temperatures, were equivalent for all Loligo species, but significantly slower in S. sepioidea...

...Patrick S. MacGillivray; Erik J. Anderson; Glenda M. Wright; M. Edwin Demont ABSTRACT The goal of this study was to obtain a complete description of the elastic modulus and hysteresis of the mantle tissue of the squid Loligo pealei over the entire functional region of the mantle. In addition...

...William M. Kier; Johan L. Van Leeuwen ABSTRACT High-speed ciné recordings of prey capture by the squid Loligo pealei were used to analyze the kinematics of the rapid tentacular strike. The proximal portion of the tentacle, the stalk, elongates during the strike. The non-extensible distal portion...
