Behaviourally significant immobile state of so-called thanatosis in the cricket Gryllus bimaculatus DeGeer: its characterization, sensory mechanism and function

, : Behaviourally significant immobile state of so-called thanatosis in the cricket Gryllus bimaculatus DeGeer: its characterization, sensory mechanism and function. Journal of Comparative Physiology A, Sensory, Neural, and Behavioral Physiology 179(5): 613-624

Thanatosis was studied in Gryllus bimaculatus. This was reflexly elicited by gently holding the forelegs and pronotum of the cricket. During thanatosis, the respiration rate decreased markedly while the heart rate doubled compared with the resting state. Animals in the state of extreme rigidity were unresponsive to external disturbances but easily aroused by mechanical stimulation.

These studies examined whether Nphe1 antagonizes the cardiovascular and renal responses to peripheral (iv) or centra...

Immunoreactivity for gamma aminobutyric acid BR1 receptor (GABABR1) was detected in the neuropilar elements as well as in the perikarya of neurons in the neostriatum. Many of the GABABR1-immunoreactive perikarya were medium-sized with a thin rim o...
