    The human saccadic system is potentially unstable and may oscillate if the burst neurons, which generate saccades, are not inhibited by omnipause neurons. A previous study showed that combined saccade vergence movements can evoke oscillations in normal subjects. We set out to determine: 1)...

    The article examines the characteristics of sensory neurons in peripheral sensory ganglia. Subgroups of sensory neurons specialize in distinct sensory modalities, such as proprioception, nociception, heat, cold or touch. They differ in size, their projection areas, their degree of myelination,...

    An air puff stimulus to the cerci of a cricket (Gryllus bimaculatus) evokes flying when it is suspended in air, while the same stimulus evokes swimming when it is placed on the water surface. After bilateral dissection of the connectives between the suboesophageal and the prothoracic ganglia or...
