The roles of dopamine and the sodium pump in the spinal control of locomotion
(University of St Andrews, 2017) - Thesis
Rhythmically active, locomotor networks of the spinal cord are subject to both neuromodulation and activity-dependent homeostatic regulation. I first show that the neuromodulator dopamine exerts potent inhibitory effects ...
Interactions via electrical coupling in axial and appendicular motor networks during metamorphosis in Xenopus laevis tadpoles
(University of St Andrews, 2017-06-20) - Thesis
The spinal locomotor networks in Xenopus laevis frog tadpoles undergo a remarkable transformation during metamorphosis to accommodate a switch from axial-based swimming to a limb-based kicking locomotor strategy. For a ...
