Published: 01 November 1988
...K. FRASER; W. J. HEITLER Previous work has shown that the giant fibres (GFs) of the hermit crab make excitatory electrical connections with the motor giant (MoG) and segmental giant (SG) neurones, and that the SGs in turn make connections to fast flexor (FF) motor neurones. In this paper we show...

...W. J. HEITLER; K. FRASER A recent claim that the giant fibre of the hermit crab excites its contralateral motor giant neurone through a chemical rather than an electrical synapse (Stephens, 1986) was re-examined. We found that the reported increased latency (relative to the electrical ipsilateral...

...Michéle G. Wheatly; Brian R. Mcmahon; Warren W. Burggren; Alan W. Pinder After 3h(50 m) of voluntary walking, the haemolymph pH of the land hermit crab Coenobita compressus (H. Milne Edwards) decreased by 0.4units. This was accompanied by increases in CO 2 tension (P co co2 ). bicarbonate (HCO 3...

...W. J. Heitler; K. Fraser The anatomy and physiology of the segmental giant (SG) neurone of the fourth abdominal ganglion of the hermit crab is described. The SG has an apparently blindending axon in the first root and a small cell body in the anterior ipsilateral ventral quadrant of the ganglion...

...MICHÉLE G. WHEATLY; BRIAN R. MCMAHON; WARREN W. BURGGREN; ALAN W. PINDER A rotating respirometer was designed which enabled respiratory gas exchange in the land hermit crab Coenobita compressus to be correlated with voluntary submaximal sustained pedestrian activity. In the laboratory, crabs...
