Contraction rates of muscles and measurements of the input and output parameters of the vestibulo-ocular reflex action in the Antarctic fish Pagothenia borchgrevinki
Entry ID: K012_1984_1985_NZ_2

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: In order to fully describe the input and output parameters of the vestibulo-ocular reflex, simultaneous recordings are required of head movement, sensory input from the semicircular canals, motor neuron dischange and eye movement relative to the head. Contraction rates (time) in blocks of muscle cut from freshly killed Pagothenia borchgrevinki were measured after the application of an electrical ... View entire text
