Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci. ; – Tritonia diomedea is a marine nudibranch mollusk attractive for neurophysiological studies because of its large pigmented neurons, many of which are individually identifiable from animal to animal.

INTRODUCTION. The marine mollusc Tritonia diomedea initiates a rhythmic escape swim upon contact with a sufficiently aversive stimulus, such as the seastar Pycnopodia helianthoides ().The neural program underlying this behavior can be elicited by briefly stimulating any one of a number of peripheral nerves in the isolated brain preparation, indicating that the motor program is.
Enhancement of presynaptic Ca 2+ signals is widely recognized as a potential mechanism for heterosynaptic potentiation of neurotransmitter release. Here we show that stimulation of a serotonergic interneuron increased spike-evoked Ca 2+ in a manner consistent with its neuromodulatory effect on synaptic transmission.

We found that a msec vibrotactile prepulse prevented the animal’s escape swim response to a closely following 1 sec tail shock. This inhibition was highly transient, with a significant effect lasting just A promising model system is the marine mollusc Tritonia diomedea, which possesses both a magnetic compass and a relatively simple nervous system.
Six neurons in the brain of T. diomedea have been identified that respond to changes in magnetic fields. At least some of these appear to be ciliary motor neurons that generate or modulate the final. marine mollusk Tritonia diomedea, we describe a de-rated by 5 min.

One interesting example is the reconfiguration of a premotor network from a resting reflex withdrawal circuit into a rhythmic central pattern generator (CPG) swim circuit in the marine mollusk Tritonia (Katz and Frost ).None of the three major interneuron types.
This article compares the neural basis for swimming in sea slugs belonging to the Nudipleura clade of molluscs. There are two primary forms of swimming. One, dorsal/ventral (DV) body flexions, is typified by Tritonia diomedea and Pleurobranchaea californica.
Although Tritonia and Pleurobranchaea evolved DV swimming independently, there are at least two homologous. In the present study, we showed that the S-cell neurons of the Tritonia diomedea swim circuit are likely to be glutamatergic, because (1) they show glutamate immunoreactivity, (2) presynaptic depolarization releases a transmitter that acts on non-NMDA glutamate receptors to elicit the physiological response, and (3) glutamate applied to the.

The motor program underlying swimming in the marine mollusk, Tritonia diomedea, is generated by a consisting of at least three populations of cerebral interneurons. These interneuron populations are termed C2, dorsal swim interneurons (), and ventral swim interneurons (VSI). The system that we studied is the escape swim network of the mollusk Tritonia diomedea (see Fig.
The central pattern generator (CPG) for the rhythmic escape swim behavior is composed of three cell types (see Fig. 1 A,B): the dorsal swim interneurons (DSIs), the ventral swim interneurons A and B (VSI-A, VSI-B), and cerebral interneuron 2. We previously demonstrated that PPI occurs in the marine mollusk Tritonia diomedea, using a tactile prepulse to inhibit the animal's escape startle response to an aversive skin shock stimulus (Mongeluzi et al., ).
A prepulse-activated interneuron, Pleural-9 (Pl-9), was found to be necessary and sufficient for prepulse skin stimuli to. Central pattern generators (CPGs) are biological neural circuits that produce rhythmic outputs in the absence of rhythmic input. They are the source of the tightly-coupled patterns of neural activity that drive rhythmic and stereotyped motor behaviors like walking, swimming, flying, ejaculating, urinating, defecating, breathing, or chewing.
The escape swim network of the marine mollusk Tritonia diomedea has previously been suggested to be multifunctional for swimming and reflexive withdrawal (Getting and Dekin, b; Getting, ), with its role in swimming particularly well documented (Getting, a).

Tritonia diomedea swimming has been studied for more than three decades as a model for understanding the neural basis of rhythmic behavior (Willows, ; see Getting, for review).For almost that long, there has been an interest in the neural basis of simple types of experience-dependent changes in the swimming response (Abraham and Willows.
The nudibranch mollusc Tritonia diomedea has been a useful model system for studies of how the brain controls behavior. However, no broad study of T. diomedea field behavior exists—an important deficit since laboratory behaviors may differ from what occurs in nature.

Swimming behavior in the marine mollusc Tritonia diomedea is episodic, consisting of a series of alternating dorsal and ventral flexions initiated by a brief sensory stimulus. The swim motor pattern is generated by a network formed of four groups of premotor interneurons: cerebral cell 2 (C2), dorsal swim interneurons (DSIs), and two types of.

Tritonia Escape Swimming. When the marine mollusk Tritonia diomedea is contacted by a predator (for example, by the tube feet of a starfish), it generates an escape response: It stiffens its entire body, turning its body into a paddle, It then "flaps" this paddle around its midline by alternating ventral and dorsal flexions of its entire body.
Central pattern generators (CPGs) are neural networks that produce rhythmic patterned outputs without sensory feedback.   CPGs have been shown to produce rhythmic outputs resembling normal "rhythmic motor pattern production" even in isolation from motor and sensory feedback from limbs and other muscle targets.  To be classified as a rhythmic generator, a CPG.

We address the question what can be achieved with a simplified discrete model. The proposed model resembles artificial neural networks enriched with additional biologically inspired features.
A neuron has several states, and the state transitions follow endogenous patterns which roughly correspond. Enhancement of presynaptic Ca2+ signals is widely recognized as a potential mechanism for heterosynaptic potentiation of neurotransmitter release.
