Intraspecific variation in swimming performance, morphology and escape responses was assessed in the labriform shiner perch, Cymatogaster aggregata. Shiner perch were videotaped while swimming in a respirometer during a critical swimming speed (Ucrit) protocol. The degree of individual variation in both oxygen consumption rate (ṀO2) and kinematic performance was evaluated from this Ucrit challenge. Fast escape performance was also evaluated in the same group of fish. There was an approximately two-fold variation in metabolic rate of fish swimming at 0.5 body lengths per second ([email protected] bl s-1) and active metabolic rate, aerobic scope for swimming and critical swimming speed. A significant correlation was found between active metabolic rate and aerobic scope and between [email protected] bl s-1 and aerobic scope. Similarly there was a significant relationship between active metabolic rate and Ucrit. Individual variation in swimming performance could not be explained by differences in morphology of the ...

A large body of evidence indicates that brain monoamines are involved in the pathogenesis of mental depression, as well as in the mechanism of action of most antidepressant treatments. The present report shows that long-term exposure to imipramine (IMI) or fluoxetine (FLX) was equally potent in preventing the escape deficits produced in rats by repeated unavoidable shocks. The acute administration of SCH 23390, a selective D1 dopamine receptor blocker, shortly before the inescapable shock session, entirely prevented IMI effect on escape performance, but only partially prevented that of FLX. Moreover, pindolol (an antagonist of beta-adrenoceptors and of serotonin 5-HT(1A) and 5-HT(1B) receptors) completely antagonized the efficacy of FLX in preventing escape deficits, whereas it did not effect the activity of IMI. The acute administration of propranolol failed to alter the effect of either antidepressant. It was concluded that in rats, the efficacy of IMI in counteracting the stress-induced ...
This is an analysis of whether biomechanical or kinematic variables are controlled by descending reticulospinal commands to the spinal cord during escape responses (C-starts) in the goldfish. We studied how the animal contracted its trunk musculature to orient an escape trajectory. We used trunk EMG recordings as a measure of the reticulospinal output to the musculature and we simultaneously gathered high-speed cinematic records of the resulting movements. We found that the escape trajectory is controlled by (1) the relative size of the agonist versus the antagonist muscle contractions on two sides of the body and (2) the timing between these contractions. We found no separate signal for forward propulsion (or force) apart from the initial stage 1 bending of the body. Rather, the neural specification of force is embedded in the commands to bend the body. Thus, our findings demonstrate the importance of the angular kinematic components, or direction changes, caused by the descending ...
Aquatic organisms use flow patterns generated by other organisms and inanimate objects to detect their presence-for example for prey capture [1-4], to evade predators [5,6], to find mates [7] or hosts [6]-and to reduce swimming effort when swimming downstream from inanimate objects [8,9] or in schools [10-12]. In these instances, organisms use flow patterns that they did not generate. Furthermore, aquatic organisms interact with wakes that they themselves have generated, such as bluegill sunfish, whose tail fin beats in the wake generated by its dorsal and anal fins [13] and whose pectoral fins synchronize with opercular pumping [14]. In such instances, fish control both the upstream and the downstream flow and are speculated to enhance their swimming performance by modulating the phase between the interacting wakes.. During escape-response C-starts, fish tend to move away from the threat [5,15,16], which may require them to reverse their initial heading and thereby swim through their own wake. ...
Most studies investigating the genetic basis of animal behavior have focused on a single genetic background-often the reference laboratory strain. As a result, we have relatively little understanding of the genetic basis of natural variation in behavior. In this study, we sought to identify the genetic mechanisms that generate natural variation in behavioral responses to a thermal stimulus. Our results show that the escape behavior induced by thermal stimuli is composed of simpler behavioral components that are influenced by at least six distinct genetic loci. Our results reveal a genetic system that allows independent modification of behavioral components regulating escape response. Overall, our study reveals the constraints and the flexibility of the genetic mechanisms that generate diversity in C. elegans escape behavior.. We have identified six distinct genetic loci underlying different components of escape behavior and explaining a fraction of the variation that we observe in the RIAIL ...
Background Any organism depends on its ability to sense temperature and avoid noxious heat. The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans responds to noxious temperatures exceeding ∼35°C and also senses changes in its environmental temperature in the range between 15 and 25°C. The neural circuits and molecular mechanisms involved in thermotaxis have been successfully studied, whereas details of the thermal avoidance behavior remain elusive. In this work, we investigate neurological and molecular aspects of thermonociception using genetic, cell biological and physiological approaches. Methodology/Principal Findings We show here that the thermosensory neurons AFD, in addition to sensing temperature within the range within which the animals can thrive, also contribute to the sensation of noxious temperatures resulting in a reflex-like escape reaction. Distinct sets of interneurons are involved in transmitting thermonociception and thermotaxis, respectively. Loss of AFD is partially compensated by the activity
The suprathreshold fluorescence response of the M-cell (,0.7 × AD) elicited by the water pulse stimulus represents generation of an orthodromic action potential, because its amplitude was similar to that evoked by a single AD spike and was distinguishable from the subthreshold Ca2+ response (Figs. 2 ⇑-4). Simultaneous Ca2+ imaging and whole-cell recording have demonstrated that the somatic Ca2+ increase associated with an action potential is much larger than that with subthreshold depolarization (Smetters et al., 1999; Viana di Prisco and Alford, 2004; Berger et al., 2007). Single spiking of the M-cell is supported by the previous observations: (1) the M-cell is prevented from firing repetitively by a powerful recurrent feedback inhibitory circuit (Furukawa and Furshpan, 1963; Faber and Korn, 1978) and expression of low-threshold potassium channels as shown in goldfish (Nakayama and Oda, 2004); (2) the recurrent inhibitory circuit was also demonstrated in both adult and larval zebrafish ...

Neuropeptides are a diverse assemblage of signalling molecules that have key roles in the regulation of behaviour. Understanding the evolutionary relationships and functions of the plethora of neuropeptides has presented a considerable challenge to biologists. Based on presentations and discussions at a Royal Society meeting in 2017, three companion Review articles by Elphick et al., Jékely et al. and DeLaney et al. discuss advances in our knowledge of neuropeptide evolution and function and the techniques that have facilitated progress in this field of research.. ...

While preparing a function that contained non-ASCII characters for inclusion into a package, I replaced all non-ASCII characters with UTF-8 escape sequences (using \uxxxx) in order to make the package portable (and adhere to R CMD check). What I didnt expect: when one uses UTF-8 escape sequences in function arguments, one needs to use UTF-8 escape sequences when calling the function, too - even when working in a UTF-8 locale. Is this an intended behaviour? Heres an example to illustrate the (putative) problem: ## function that uses non-ASCII characters in arguments plain ,- function(myarg = c(Basel, Bern, Z rich)) { myarg ,- match.arg(myarg ...

Animals should be able to adjust their behavior by tracking changes in predation risk level continuously. Many animals show a pattern of intermittent locomotion with short pauses that may increase detection and vigilance of predators. These locomotor patterns may depend on the microhabitat structure, which affect predation risk levels. We examined in detail in the laboratory the characteristics of spontaneous locomotion, scanning behavior, and the escape performance of Psammodromus algirus lizards moving in two different microhabitats (leaf litter patches and open sand areas). Results showed that in leaf litter, lizards moved at slower speed and had shorter bursts of locomotion both in distance and duration, than in sand substrates. This locomotor pattern allowed lizards to increase scanning rate and total time spent in vigilance behavior. When lizards were forced to flee, they escaped to longer distances and during more time in open sand areas, but lizards were able to attain similar escape ...
Transmission across the septal junctions of the segmented giant axons of crayfish is accounted for quantitatively by a simple equivalent circuit. The septal membranes are passive, resistive components and transmission is ephaptic, by the electrotonic spread of the action current of the pre-septal spike. The electrotonic spread appears as a septal potential, considerably smaller than the pre-septal spike, but usually still large enough to initiate a new spike in the post-septal segments. The septal membranes do not exhibit rectification, at least over a range of ± 25 mv polarization and this accounts for their capacity for bidirectional transmission. The commissural branches, which are put forth by each lateral axon, make functional connections between the two axons. Transmission across these junctions can also be bidirectional and is probably also ephaptic. Under various conditions, the ladder-like network of cross-connections formed by the commissural junctions can give rise to circus ...
Generation of adaptive behaviour depends critically on an animals ability to detect multiple sensory cues from the natural environment. Often, visual information provides the first cue about the saliency of objects that the animal encounters and, in many cases, visual information triggers production of adaptive behavioural responses (Gibson, 1979). Since the visual environment contains contextually variable information, one function of the visual system is to detect potentially threatening cues early enough so that an appropriate behavioural response can be initiated. For example, objects approaching along a direct collision course generate a looming visual stimulus that an animal can use as a cue to trigger an escape reaction. Previous visual stimuli can influence the sensitivity of the underlying detection systems to looming cues and, ultimately, the resulting behaviour. In a complex environment, multiple looming objects of different sizes can move at different velocities and along different ...

Escape behaviors in penaeid shrimp are mediated by large myelinated medial giant fibers which course from the brain to the last abdominal ganglion in the ventral nerve cord. In each abdominal segment, the medial giant axons make synaptic connections with paired myelinated motor giant axons that excite the abdominal deep flexor muscles and drive the tailflips that constitute the escape behavior. I examined (1) anatomical features of the abdominal motor giant fibers and (2) electrical properties of both the medial and motor giant axons in the pink shrimp, Farfantepenaeus duorarum The motor giant axons in the paired third roots of shrimp abdominal ganglia emerge from a single fused neurite that originates from two clusters of cell bodies within the ganglion ...

In a three observer configuration, we have a concept of the master observer and two backup observers. When fast-start failover (FSFO) is initiated, the primary and the standby database randomly choose from the list of registered observers and designates a master observer. If there is no observer registered, then the first observer that is started becomes the master observer. The subsequent observers that join the FSFO configuration become the backup observers.. Only the master observer has the privilege of coordinating the FSFO with the Data Guard broker. Other registered observers serve the role of backup observers until the master observer is not available.. Observer placement continues to be a critical component to the Data Guard topology. Oracle has always recommended to place the observer in another data center. With multiple observers in play, the same recommendation still holds true. Now, with additional observers, there are other factors to consider. We should never place the observers ...

One possibility is that the neural circuits involved in this behaviour are the largely the same as those responsible for rapid escape responses (C-starts). These neurons are well known, and involve famous giant neurons called Mauthner neurons. It would be interesting to see if the neural circuit is perhaps a pre-adaptation for these jumps on land. This paper shows that C-starts are different in the timing of their movement than the jumps on land, but that does not completely rule out the involvement of some of the same neurons in bothe behaviours ...

We perform the asymptotic analysis of the scalar advection-diffusion equation y ε t −εy ε xx +M y ε x = 0, (x, t) ∈ (0, 1) × (0, T), with respect to the diffusion coefficient ε. We use the matched asymptotic expansion method which allows to describe the boundary layers of the solution. We then use the asymptotics to discuss the controllability property of the solution for T ≥ 1/M .

These notes are intended to be a tutorial material revisiting in an almost self-contained way, some control results for the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation posed on a bounded interval. We address the topics of boundary controllability and internal stabilization for this nonlinear control system. Concerning controllability, homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions are considered and a control is put on the Neumann boundary condition at the right end-point of the interval. We show the existence of some critical domains for which the linear KdV equation is not controllable. In despite of that, we prove that in these cases the nonlinearity gives the exact controllability. Regarding stabilization, we study the problem where all the boundary conditions are homogeneous. We add an internal damping mechanism in order to force the solutions of the KdV equation to decay exponentially to the origin in $L^2$-norm. ...

Also, were really abusing the term funarg in our code. The term means function-as-argument --- a function passed as a value to another function, and by extension, a function returned as a value. We use it to mean a function that refers to variables from enclosing scopes that may have been moved onto the heap. So our code may say this function is a funarg when the function in question is only ever called, never passed. Our funargs are a category created by the fact that funargs are permitted in our language, but theyre not funargs. needsClosure or needsStackOnly (in the negative sense) would be better ...
