.... This contact appears to help push the prey toward the esophagus, and it may also serve to anchor the prey for tongue-based transport. Electromyographic recordings confirm strong activity in the retractor bulbi muscles during eye retraction. After bilateral denervation of the retractor bulbi, frogs maintain...

...Kiisa C. Nishikawa; Carl Gans ABSTRACT Electromyography, kinematic analysis, muscle stimulation and denervation techniques were used to investigate the muscular mechanisms of narial closure during breathing and of tongue protraction during prey capture in the marine toad Bufo marinus . Toads were...

...Stephen M. Deban; Kiisa C. Nishikawa ABSTRACT Prey capture was studied in the green tree frog (Hyla cinerea) before and after denervation of either the m. genioglossus or m. submentalis using high-speed videography and kinematic analysis. The prey capture behavior and extent of tongue protraction...

...Hiroshi Washio ABSTRACT Functional changes following denervation have been studied by intracellular recording at the neuromuscular junction of the cockroach coxal muscle. Spontaneous subthreshold activity disappeared together with nerve-muscle transmission in about 2 days after nerve section at 26...

...Ulrich Bässler; Uta Wegner ABSTRACT The denervated thoracic ventral nerve cord produces a motor output which is similar to that observed in the intact animal during irregular leg movements (seeking movements) or rocking, but not walking. When the nerves to some legs are left intact, and the animal...
