Control of locomotion in marine mollusc — Clione limacina. V. Photoinactivation of efferent neurons

  • 53 Accesses

  • 15 Citations

Summary

Efferent neurons in isolated pedal ganglia of the pteropodial mollusc Clione limacina were filled with Lucifer Yellow through the wing nerves. Then the ganglia were illuminated with intense blue light which resulted in the complete inactivation of these neurons. After inactivation of efferent neurons, interneurons of the pedal ganglia continued to generate the locomotor rhythm.
