... mollusc, Tritonia diomedea , suggests that locomotory ciliated epithelial cells may be under direct electrical control. Here we report that depolarization of ciliated pedal epithelial (CPE)cells increases ciliary beating frequency (CBF), and elicits CBF increases similar to those caused by dopamine...

... locomotion in the nudibranch mollusc, Tritonia diomedea . Ciliated pedal epithelial (CPE) cells acting as locomotory effectors may be electrically excitable. To explore this possibility we characterized the cells' electrical properties, and found that CPE cells have large voltage dependent whole cell...

...Russell C. Wyeth; A. O. Dennis Willows SUMMARY Tritonia diomedea is a useful neuroethological model system that can contribute to our understanding of the neural control of navigation. Prior work on both sensory and locomotory systems is complemented by recent field experiments, which concluded...

...John H. Wang; Shaun D. Cain; Kenneth J. Lohmann SUMMARY Diverse animals use the Earth's magnetic field as an orientation cue, but little is known about the sensory, processing and motor elements of the neural circuitry underlying magnetic orientation behavior. The marine mollusc Tritonia diomedea...

...I. R. Popescu; A. O. D. Willows ABSTRACT Although the nudibranch mollusc Tritonia diomedea orients to the geomagnetic field, the anatomical site and the mechanism of the geomagnetic transducer are not known. Previous work on semi-intact preparations of Tritonia diomedea in which the brain is intact...
