Neural basis of a simple behavior: abdominal positioning in crayfish

Microscopy Research and Technique

J L Larimer, Darrell Moore

Abstract

Crustaceans have been used extensively as models for studying the nervous system. Members of the Order Decapoda, particularly the larger species such as lobsters and crayfish, have large segmented abdomens that are positioned by tonic flexor and extensor muscles. Importantly, the innerv...read more
