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]
