Published: 8 March 2022
...Robert W. Meech ABSTRACT Although neural tissues in cnidarian hydroids have a nerve net structure, some cnidarian medusae contain well-defined nerve tracts. As an example, the hydrozoan medusa Aglantha digitale has neural feeding circuits that show an alignment and condensation, which is absent...

...-bilaterian metazoan genomes were compared. This includes the cnidarian Nematostella vectensis and the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi , which have primitive nervous systems (nerve nets), the demosponge Amphimedon queenslandica and the placozoan Trichoplax adhaerens , which lack nerve and muscle cells...

...Richard A. Satterlie Summary The traditional view of the cnidarian nervous system is of a diffuse nerve net that functions as both a conducting and an integrating system; this is considered an indicator of a primitive condition. Yet, in medusoid members, varying degrees of nerve net compression...

... detected, types A, B and C. Type A pulses are probably associated with neurones of the through-conducting nerve net. Type B pulses may be from the endodermal slow conduction system (SS2). Type C pulses have not previously been recorded and are thought to represent activity in a local nerve net...

... increases in length over a period of several hours until the pedal disc finally attaches to a buried shell. Burrowing is controlled by bursts of pulses generated by the through-conducting nerve net. These pulses produce column shortening and peristalsis. Regular intervals between pulses and between bursts...

... single shocks, but only in tentacles that contract. These single shocks excite pulses in two conducting systems - the through-conducting nerve net (TCNN) and the ectodermal slow conduction system (SS1). When a single shock evokes contractions and bursts of electrical activity, these usually follow...

...Ian D. Mcfarlane ABSTRACT Bursts of through-conducting nerve net (TCNN) pulses, 20–45 min apart, were recorded from Calliactis attached to shells. Within 15–25 min of the anemones being detached the TCNN bursts suddenly became more frequent (only 4–11 min apart). Such bursts continued for several...
