... chromatophores in colour change. Our Review concludes that the physiological costs result from either one or a combination of the processes of (i) production, (ii) translocation and (iii) maintenance of pigments within the colour-containing cells (chromatophores). In addition, both types of colour change...

... Chromatophores Crypsis is a common behavioural–morphological adaptation aimed at minimizing detection by predators or prey ( Caro, 2005a , b ; Ruxton et al., 2004 ). Visually active organisms are skilled at detecting movement, which often indicates the existence of a potential danger or of an object...

... or chromatophores extending centrally from dorsal and ventral reservoirs are filled with pigment during the light-adapted state but empty in the dark-adapted state. For each species, both eyes of two specimens were fixed in 0.1 mol l -1 phosphate buffer containing 3.5% paraformaldehyde, 0.25%glutaraldehyde and 2...

...J. B. Messenger; C. J. Cornwell; C. M. Reed ABSTRACT Colour changes in cephalopods are controlled by complex organs termed chromatophores whose radial muscles are directly innervated from the brain. In the squids Alloteuthis subulata and Loligo vulgaris , light microscopy of silver- or Methylene...

...Graham P. Ferguson; John B. Messenger; Bernd U. Budelmann ABSTRACT Rotation (roll or pitch) of a cuttlefish away from its normal orientation produces countershading reflexes (CSRs) that consist of chromatophore expansion on the ventral body surface. When rotation is in the roll plane, the CSR has...

...Graham P. Ferguson; Frank M. Martini; Harold M. Pinsker ABSTRACT Chromatophore motoneurones in Lolliguncula brevis are known to originate in the suboesophageal lobes of the brain and to project directly to the mantle and fin through bilateral stellate ganglia and fin nerves. The chromatophore motor...
