Welcome to Akira Sakurai's Home page

Swimming behavior of two nudibranch species:
Melibe leonina and Dendronotus iris.

I am interested in how gbrainh produces a series of body motions or a patterned behavior.
What is the neuronal mechanism of body motion and how does it switch from one motion to the other?


Sea slugfs brain?

Crustacean heart?
