... is the paired statocysts at the base of the first antennal segment. To better understand the comparative sound detection of decapods, auditory evoked potentials were recorded from the statocyst nerve region of four species ( Leptograpsus variegate , Plagusia chabrus , Ovalipes catharus , Austrohelice crassa...

... (AEPs) with electrodes placed near the statocysts. Evoked potentials were generated by both stimuli and consisted of two wave types: (1) rapid stimulus-following waves, and (2) slower, high-amplitude waves, similar to some fish AEPs. Responses were obtained between 30 and 500 Hz with lowest thresholds...

...N. Hama; Y. Tsuchida; M. Takahata SUMMARY Crustacean posture control is based on a complex interaction between the statocyst input and other sensory inputs as well as the animal's behavioral context. We examined the effects of behavioral condition on the activity of descending statocyst pathways...

... of the statocysts demonstrates that it is the gravity receptor systems that drive the CSRs. Unilateral destruction of the gravity receptor systems shows that the pitch CSR is driven bilaterally, whereas the roll CSR is driven unilaterally. Components A and B of the roll CSR are driven by input from the ipsilateral...

The magnitude of these bursts could be decreased or increased by stimulation of the efferent axons ( Fig. 8 ). It is proposed that two populations of efferents are present in the octopus statocyst, one...
