..., the muscle they supply appears to specify the pattern of central connections they establish with motoneurones. Developing thoracic sensory neurones made to project to novel peripheral targets in the forelimb of tadpoles project into the brachial spinal cord, something they never do in normal frogs. Moreover...

..., 1981 ). Since some motoneurones make central synapses ( Watson and Burrows, 1982 ; Burrows et al . 1989 ), it is probable that glutamate is also released centrally. Indeed, Bicker et al . (1988) found glutamate-like immunoreactivity in the central projections of known glutamatergic motoneurones...

..., Eisen & Westerfield, 1986 ) The muscles on each side of each body segment of the zebrafish are innervated by three uniquely identifiable motoneurones ( Westerfield, McMurray & Eisen, 1986 ). Each motoneurone innervates a cell-specific, contiguous subset of muscle fibres in a stereotyped...

...T. A. Sears ABSTRACT Motoneurone disease (MND or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a paralysing disease of unknown cause involving progressive, widespread muscle atrophy due to degeneration of spinal and other motoneurones and an accompanying loss of Betz cells in the motor cortex. A current...

...Klaus Hensler ABSTRACT Intracellular recordings were made from prothoracic neurones of crickets which were free to move in a quite normal way. During the head roll component of eye cleaning, the motoneurones (MNs) to the driving muscles, dorso-ventral neck muscles 55, 56 and 60, received excitatory...

...E. Henneman ABSTRACT To understand how even a single muscle is controlled, we must understand how a large ensemble of neurones can generate a complex function through the collective action of its members. The orderly recruitment of motoneurones (MNs) and motor units according to their sizes...

...G. E. Loeb ABSTRACT Physiological principles of motor control have generally been based on linear servocontrol theories in which transducers of force, length and velocity are used to provide feedback to the motor actuators. Within the past few years, recordings of the activity of motoneurones...

...F. Claire Rind ABSTRACT The morphology and the innervation of the main wing depressor muscles have been studied. The motoneurones to these muscles have dendrites ipsilateral to the muscle they innervate and located in the dorsal neuropile. With the exception of one motoneurone, to the dorsal...
