... (EAG) has so far been mainly restricted to aerial conditions. We present here a well-established underwater EAG method to record the global antennule activity in the marine shrimp Palaemon elegans in natural (aqueous) conditions. EAG responses to food extracts, recorded as net positive deviations of...

.... `Programmed sperm degradation' on a periodic basis or an innate sperm`expiry date' have never been shown. This manuscript describes a newly discovered molt-dependent mechanism by which old sperm is periodically removed from the reproductive system of male Litopenaeus vannamei shrimp. Firstly, it is shown that...

...EDGA MEYHÖFER; THOMAS DANIEL We measured the dynamic stiffness of passive single extensor cells from the abdomen of the shrimp Pandalus danae . These stiffness measurements, consisting of both elastic and viscous moduli, were carried out by imposing sinusoidal length changes on single cells and...

...THOMAS L. DANIEL; EDGAR MEYHÖFER Escape locomotion of the common dock shrimp, Pandalus danae Stimpson, is the result of a rapid flexion of the abdomen that lasts approximately 30 ms. The hydrodynamic forces that result from this motion lead to body accelerations in excess of 100ms −2 and body...

...C. K. GOVIND; K. M. MEAROW; A. WONG The fibre composition of the closer muscle in the paired asymmetric (snapper and pincer) chelipeds of the snapping shrimp, Alpheus heterochelis (Say), was determined in the pristine and in the regenerated conditions. In the pristine condition, the snapper muscle...
