Analysis of the rapid responses of Nereis and Harmothoe (Annelida)

Horridge, George Adrian


The giant-fibre responses of Harmothoë and Nereis have been studied with emphasis on the afferent and efferent path ways and the sites of the rapid accommodation of the fast response. When the bundle of sensory neurones of the anal cirrus is stimulated the giant-fibres respond at the first shock. This terminal junction then rapidly accommodates to further afferent excitation. In Harmothoë the muscles which effect the rapid movements of the giant-fibre response are directly innervated by large...[Show more]
