Calcium and potassium currents in leg motoneurons during postembryonic development in the hawkmoth Manduca sexta



Calcium and potassium currents in leg motoneurons during postembryonic development in the hawkmoth Manduca sexta



Journal of Experimental Biology 171: 15-42



During insect metamorphosis the nervous system is reorganized to accommodate changes in behaviour. In Manduca sexta, many identified larval motoneurons persist to innervate new adult muscles, while undergoing changes in dendritic morphology and synaptic connections. The thoracic leg motoneurons, for example, innervate different sets of muscles in the larva and adult and participate in distinct types of locomotor behaviour in the 2 stages of life.
