Patterns of gas exchange among terrestrial arthropods are highly variable from continuous to discontinuous with discretely partitioned phases. The underlying initiation and co-ordination of these patterns is relatively poorly understood. Here we present a novel method for the simultaneous measurement of central nervous system (CNS) activity of the metathoracic ganglion and VCO2 in medium to large sized live terrestrial arthropods. Using Periplaneta americana at four oxygen levels (40%, 21%, 10%...[Show more]
