The nerves and muscles of medusae. V. Double innervation in Scyphozoa
Summary 1. The compensatory movements of Cyanea (Semaeostomeae) and Cassiopea (Rhizostomeae) are described. The asymmetry of these responses is not compatible with the properties of the through-conducting giant fibre net which propagates the contraction wave. 2. Stimulation experiments with Cyanea show that a second nerve net, called the diffuse net, acts locally on the muscles of the bell and delays the process of relaxation. 3. In Cassiopea, the responses of a ring of tissue containing...[Show more]
