Abstract:

The work showed how the animals may be prepared and kept for electrical recording. It made a beginning with the study of afferent impulses in the optic nerves. The presence of efferent impulses in the optic nerves and their influence on the electroretinogram. Impulses were shown for the first time in nerve fibres of the statocyst. Individual fibres of the lateral crista have been shown to respond both to low-frequency vibration and to angular acceleration. The latter response varied with the direction of rotation. Author
