Synapses upon motoneurons of locusts during retrograde degeneration

Horridge, George Adrian; Burrows, M.


Four interneurons of the ventral cord, the descending movement detectors (DMD) have symmetrical synapses upon the fast extensor tibiae (FETi) motoneurons on each side of the metathoracic ganglion. Each impulse in a DMD interneuron generates an excitatory post-synaptic potential (e.p.s.p.) of constant and similar amplitude in both FETi motoneurons of a normal locust. The symmetry provides inherent controls which makes this a convenient system to study the effect on inputs to a motoneuron caused...[Show more]
