Horseshoe Crab Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior
Our work on horseshoe crabs spans from molecular studies of second messengers to field studies of mating behavior. For more informations about Limulus ventilation, gill gleaning, cardiac physiology, CNS central pattern generators, cardiac ganglion neurophysiology and modulation of neural networks and muscles by neuropeptides and biogenic amines, download the appropriate papers listed in the Publications section of this web site.
