    • Activity-dependent development of the locomotor network in Xenopus laevis larvae 

      Bender, Franziska (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
      The impact of activity in Xenopus embryonic and larval development was studied with regards to the locomotor system and developmental rate. The data suggest that pharmacologically suppressing neuronal and muscular activity ...
    • The development of free-swimming in Xenopus laevis larvae 

      Scott, Nicholas W. (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
      In Xenopus laevis frog tadpoles, highly self-motive, free-swimming behaviour emerges at the onset of feeding. This is in contrast to the earlier post-hatched larval form, which is capable of escape swimming when stimulated, ...
    • Muscarinic actions in Xenopus laevis tadpole swimming 

      Porter, Nicola Jean (University of St Andrews, 2013-11-29) - Thesis
      Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChRs) mediate effects of acetylcholine (ACh) in many systems, including those involved in locomotion. In the stage 37/38 Xenopus laevis tadpole, a well-understood model system of ...
