[The active electrogenesis of the command neurons in the defensive behavior of the mollusk during conditioning].

[Article in Russian]


In the paper changes of active electrogenesis of the command neurones of defensive closure of snail pneumostome at elaboration, extinction and repeated elaboration of classic conditioned defensive reflex to tactile stimulus was described; the tactile stimulation of other point of the body served as a differentiating stimulus. During the increase of biological significance of conditioned stimulus as a result of learning the stimulation of the command neurones in response to this stimulus was raised. At the same time the neurones showed decreased excitability in response to differentiating stimulus. Possible mechanisms of quick reconstruction of neurones excitability and functional value of PA generation threshold changes were discussed.
