... behavior memory transplantation innervation plasticity frog One of the major challenges facing cognitive science and neurobiology is the integration of interdisciplinary approaches to understand the plasticity of the brain and nervous system. While developmental biology research has elucidated...

... a novel role for these receptors in vertebrates. No effects of adrenergic stimulation were detected in the posterior chamber. In a detailed examination of the musculature and innervation of the swimbladder to determine the anatomical substrate for these functional results, we found that the anterior...

...Cathleen Rotte; Jeannine Witte; Wolfgang Blenau; Otto Baumann; Bernd Walz SUMMARY Cockroach salivary glands are innervated by dopaminergic and serotonergic neurons. Both transmitters elicit saliva secretion. We studied the distribution pattern of neurons containing γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA...

...Michael G. Jonz; Colin A. Nurse SUMMARY The fish gill is a highly specialized and complex organ that performs a variety of important physiological functions. In this article, we briefly review the innervation of important structures of the branchial region, such as the gill filaments, respiratory...

.... These studies demonstrate that MYH13 is preferentially expressed in the majority of orbital and global fibers in the central innervation zone of rabbit EOM. Many individual fibers express MYH13 with the fast IIb myosin and varying amounts of IIx myosin. The differential localization of MYH13, coupled...

... 50Hz. At frequencies giving maximum tetanic tension, the twitch/tetanus ratio was 0.70 for fast fibres and 0.29 for slow ones. These results are discussed with reference to the polyneuronal/multiterminal innervation pattern of the myotomal muscle in teleost fish and its role in locomotion. 4 5...

Each pleuroaxillary muscle is innervated by two motor neurones which give rise to a small and a large muscle potential in electromyogram recordings (Fig. 6E). The cell body of each neurone lies...
