... in the loliginid Doryteuthis opalescens , but only after chronic denervation of chromatophores for 5–7 days. Electrically stimulated, neurally driven activity in intact individuals of both species is blocked by tetrodotoxin (TTX), but TTX has no effect on spontaneous wave activity in either D. gigas or denervated...

.... 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...

...Dale Ritter; Kiisa Nishikawa ABSTRACT High-speed videography and muscle denervation experiments were used to quantify the feeding kinematics of Hemisus marmoratum and to test hypotheses of muscle function. The feeding behavior of H. marmoratum , which feeds on ants and termites, differs radically...

...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...
