Transmission of excitation through the ganglia of Mya (Lamellibranchiata)
The common clam (Mya arenaria) is a bivalve mollusc with a shell up to 9 cm long. A greatly extensible siphon extends to the surface of the estuarine muds from which the animals are dug at low tide. The nervous system consists of several main bundles and ganglia, and proves to be favourable material for the study of temporal and spatial summation. The responses are relatively slow and the effects of stimulation are long lasting. The nervous system of this group of animals has hardly been...[Show more]
